How to extend the MODI's built in language dictionary for OCR ? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi -

    I understand that Microsoft Office document Imaging has OCR
    capabilities. When optical character recognition (OCR) is performed on
    a TIFF file or MDI file, text is recognized using sophisticated
    pattern-recognition software that compares scanned text characters
    with a built-in dictionary of character shapes and sequences.

    My observation is that fixed width fonts (DOS based) are NOT
    recognized accurately by MODI application. Is there anyway that I can
    expand the built-in dictionary so that more fonts are recognized?

    MODI can be found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared
    \MODI\11.0
    Can I expand the file English.lng? If yes, how can I do that?

    Thanks,
    SSG
