Book: Dual Pages
Situation description: two pages are scanned simultaneously in one
scanning session; too many errors during recognition because each page has a
different tilt; this document is saved as one page with two columns.
For good recognition the image should have the so-called standard orientation: the text should
be read top-down and the lines should be horizontal. During
recognition FineReader detects the page
orientation automatically by default. Images
of dual pages have no standard orientation because each page has its own
Solution: There is a special mode in
FineReader where an image with dual pages is split into two different batch
pages. This allows you to process each page separately. To correct the
skew of each page
during recognition automatically and to save the recognized text from each page into a separate file or on a separate
page do the following:
the Split dual pages item
the Scan/Open Image tab in the Options dialog before adding
images to the batch.
You can also split dual pages
by using the Split image item in the Image menu. For

with business cards.
