Class TesseractOCRConfig

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class TesseractOCRConfig extends Object implements Serializable
Configuration for TesseractOCRParser. This class is not thread safe and must be synchronized externally.

This class will remember all set* field forever, and on cloneAndUpdate(TesseractOCRConfig), it will update all the fields that have been set on the "update" config. So, for example, if you want to change language to "fra" from "eng" and then on another parse, you want to change depth to 5 on the same update object, but you expect the language to revert to "eng", you'll be wrong. Create a new update config for each parse unless you're only changing the same field(s) with every parse.

    • getLangs

      public static void getLangs(String language, Set<String> validLangs, Set<String> invalidLangs)
      This takes a language string, parses it and then bins individual langs into valid or invalid based on regexes against the language codes

      validLangs -
      invalidLangs -
    • getLanguage

      public String getLanguage()
      See Also:
    • setLanguage

      public void setLanguage(String languageString)
      Set tesseract language dictionary to be used. Default is "eng". languages are either:
      1. Nominally an ISO-639-2 code but compound codes are allowed separated by underscore: e.g., chi_tra_vert, aze_cyrl
      2. A file path in the script directory. The name starts with upper-case letter. Some of them have underscores and other upper-case letters: e.g., script/Arabic, script/HanS_vert, script/Japanese_vert, script/Canadian_Aboriginal
      Multiple languages may be specified, separated by plus characters. e.g. "chi_tra+chi_sim+script/Arabic"
    • getPageSegMode

      public String getPageSegMode()
      See Also:
    • setPageSegMode

      public void setPageSegMode(String pageSegMode)
      Set tesseract page segmentation mode. Default is 1 = Automatic page segmentation with OSD (Orientation and Script Detection)
    • getPageSeparator

      public String getPageSeparator()
      See Also:
    • setPageSeparator

      public void setPageSeparator(String pageSeparator)
      The page separator to use in plain text output. This corresponds to Tesseract's page_separator config option. The default here is the empty string (i.e. no page separators). Note that this is also the default in Tesseract 3.x, but in Tesseract 4.0 the default is to use the form feed control character. We are overriding Tesseract 4.0's default here.

    • setTrustedPageSeparator

      public void setTrustedPageSeparator(String pageSeparator)
      Same as setPageSeparator(String) but does not perform any checks on the string.
