PSIcapture Documentation: OCR: Language Recognition


Does OCR pick up characters like Chinese, Japanese, etc. when it searches? Or just languages that use the English alphabet?


The RecoStar engine is built to extract latin based languages. Chinese and Japanese characters will not be recognized. If they are written with a latin type font they will be recognized.

The OmniPage OCR engine has different and more complex recognition capabilities, which include some Asian languages as well as many more.

For a full list of languages supported by OmniPage, see:
