(Archived) How does Evernote decide what to "OCR"?

Recommended Posts

I know that Evernote isn't performing traditional OCR, but how does it

decide what images to attempt to scan for words?

Looking at the data I gathered from my backup program, I see that a

bunch of business cards that I sent to Evernote via email from my

iPhone have all had attempted recognition, but business cards that I

uploaded from my flatbed scanner through the Evernote Mac application

have not had any attempt.

The flatbed scanner does a better job than the iPhone, so I was hoping

to scan a big stack of cards, but if I won't be able to find them with

text search, I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

I also clipped an image from the web that's purely text and no

scanning was attempted on it either.

Is there anything I can do to request scanning of images I've uploaded

if it doesn't happen automatically?
