(Archived) HOWTO: Find text generated by OCR?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Some time ago I heard Dave Enburg mention in one of the podcasts that it is possible to get access to the text document that is created when a JPEG or PDF is scanned and run through the OCR process. I think that would be useful particularly for handwritten docs that are scanned in to EN.

Does anyone know how to find those documents?

Is this a developer question?

If not, you can get the text that's been recognized in an image by examining the result of exporting a note to .ENEX format (look for the "recoText" information), but I don't know how really useful that would be to most people, and it wouldn't be much use if you need to export all of your handwritten notes.
