Optical character recognition engine

Tesseract is an optical character recognition (OCR) engine with very high accuracy. It supports many languages, output text formatting, hOCR positional information and page layout analysis. Several image formats are supported through the Leptonica library. It can also detect whether text is monospaced or proportional.

This package contains an OCR engine - libtesseract and a command line program - tesseract.

Documentation

OCR can be used to e.g. scan books and turn them into text, which is more flexible and smaller in terms of file size.
