patnpm 30 Posted January 25, 2009 Share Posted January 25, 2009 If I type in a search term - such as 'manual' - I get a list of all the manuals I've stored in evernote, but also a number of OCRed documents in which there are handwritten words which have been interpreted as approximating to 'manual' - some of them bearing little resemblance to the original term. This gets worse the shorter the search term. Its not really a problem at the moment but as my database swells I can see it becoming quite frustrating to find the document I want amongst all the guesses of the OCR system. So I wonder if there would be any way of excluding OCRed documents from a search? That way I can get only the printed documents with the search term I want. I know I can already restrict searches to document titles with the 'intitle' search syntax. This is NOT a complaint about accuracy of the OCR system, which I'm sure must have a degree of laxity in order to make it workable. Link to comment
