Dual language OCR

Post by ue4hobbyist » Sat Jul 13, 2019 11:20 am

Many non-english documents have names or words in english but currently OCR works only for the currenty selected document language without the ability to add a second one. If I am not mistaken tesseract OCR supports multi langiage OCR.

What we have been talking about is making the document language field optional. This way it will up to the OCR engine to use language detection. This should not be something that breaks anything but will need to test if before we add the database migration and code changes. Thanks for the feedback!
