Ocr software


Recommended Posts

Dajia nihao.

I have a problem. I have some pdf files containing chinese simplified documents and I cannot transfer them to Wenlin board to elaborate them. A friend told me that the only way is via an Ocr software like Sharpeye, but I discovered that it is not freeware nor cheap. Someone knows another way to manage this file with Wenlin?

Thank you,

Have you tried selecting the Chinese text in Acrobat Reader and then copying and pasting into a text file? If the PDF was created from a word processing document or if the author had done an OCR when creating it, you should be able to copy and paste the text. If it was scanned in and stored as graphics, then that wouldn't work.

Are you sure that your pdf file has the Chinese as text and not as a picture?

When you select the text, select it with the "select Text" tool rather than the square cut and paste an image tool.

I have no problem copying text from Acrobat and opening it in Wenlin.
