windows (Archived) Disable OCR for some or ALL images/pdf

Recommended Posts

I have several images and pdfs that are in non-English languages. Evernote insists on running OCR on these images and as result, search returns some very irrelevant results.

I'd like to have a way to (one of these in that order):

1) An option to allow OCR to ONLY specific images/pdf

2) Exclude selected images/pdf from OCR

3) An option to disable OCR for the account completely

Thanks,

Vitaly

The same things happens with English language images. Road maps with dozens of cities on the image cause problems.

What I do is use your suggestion #2.

I tag selected images that cause problems with the letter X.

When I want to run a search and avoid those images, I add -tag:x to my search parameter.

That's an interesting idea, however, it only works well with notes that contain ONLY the picture. If it is a note with image and some text, you might be missing important notes just because the embedded image has a bad OCR.

Hopefully Evernote will provide a more integral solution .

Interesting concept requiring partial OCR on an individual note.

That is pushing the envelope.

I doubt there is enough current demand for Evernote will entertain that concept.
