    Help with Omnipage
    Hi all, I'm in need of some help, I am trying to use Omnipage in Microsoft access VBA. I can't find any information on how to access Omnipage. I've used the object browser and there is references to scan, use work flows and ocr. Please can someone help with this?

    Cannot uninstall Omnipage 11 even with special instructions

    Cannot uninstall Omnipage 11 even with special instructions

    Omnipage 11 will simply not uninstall. I tried the regular way (using Windows' uninstall function) and then I followed both of the methods suggested here:

    Manually Uninstall Omnipage 11

    The small "remove" program doesn't go anything. It stalls and keeps adding the line "Error while try to delete registry key Media" hundreds of times to the remove.log until in interrupt it.

    I tried the second method, of editing the regitry, but when I went to reinstall Omnipage 11 (in order to then remove it properly, as suggested), it said it cannot install. I instead tried to install Omnipage Pro 18 but it said it cannot install it because there is a previous version of Omnipage installed on my computer.

    I'm at my wits end. Please help. Thank you

    Confidence level per character

    Confidence level per character

    Good day all, 

    I am using RecApi and RecApiPlus to process images. I have been taking a look at the examples and I was able to generate a XML output file but I didn't see the Confidence Level. I have seen the Statistics part but I didn't find the value either. Can anyone give me an advice about what I can do to get than information? I have been viewing all the properties and methods per DLL but I didn't find anything that could help me get that values. 

    Any advice will be apreciated.

    PS: Sorry about my English

    Error Message: File not found or format incorrect? when trying to add wav file to new profile

    I am trying to upload a .wav file to dragon professional individual to have it transcribed by a new profile.

    what does this error mean.  I checked the file and it is 17 kbps which I believe is fine since the minimum is 11.025 kHz 16 bit mono.  can anyone help me with how to correct this.

    I have several files from two different speakers that I want to have the voice trained "from wav" files on Dragon but they don't seem to want to load.  what is the problem? 

    thank you.

    Character substitutions with no indication via confidence...1

    Character substitutions with no indication via confidence level

    Hi there,

    I am using Omnipage Capture SDK to perform recognition on A4 pages of general correspondence & invoices.
    I have noticed that occasionally I am getting strange substituted results with no indication of this via the confidence level.

    Using the image attached to this post, I ran it through CSSamples.exe - Sample27.
    The result returned is 21931295 instead of 21931995. The second 9 is being read as a looks nothing like a 2!?!
    I have figured out that this is due to a few extra pixels on the bottom part of the 9 character.
    I realise that by performing pre-processing on image, maybe thinning or despeckling I could probably achieve the correct read.  This is not an option for me, as I am recognising A4 sheets where content varies drastically.

    I am perplexed as to why Nuance thinks the character is a 2 instead of a 9 or at least indicate its uncertainty via the confidence value.

    I would appreciate any advice or help on where I could be going wrong.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    How to obtain Confidence Level and Alternative Characters for the OCR

    Hi, we are using ReCapi and ReCapi Plus for the OCR and generation of Searchable PDFs and XML output files. With the searchable PDF and the XML files we have been able to access to the characters that have been recognized by Nuance and to its location (Up, Down, Left and Right positions). 

    Even though, we also need to have access to the confidence or certainity level for each character recognized, and if possible to the alternative characters and its own confidence level.

    Do you know how to obtain the confidence level and the alternative characters of the OCR process using ReCapi and ReCapi Plus?


    Thanks and Regards.

    Run Windows 8 update for Windows 10 machine?

    I've reinstalled Omnipage 18 on a Windows 10 box. In the Nuance Omnipage Software Manager, I see a critical upgrade for "Omnipage 18 patch for Windows 8" (dated 2012-10-10) - do I need to install it for my Windows 10 machine?

    Can OP Ultimate auto-OCR documents dropped into a network...

    Can OP Ultimate auto-OCR documents dropped into a network folder?

    I work in a law office where all out staff receive hundreds of PDFs weekly.  All need to be searchable and many are not.  I would like to create a workflow as follows, can you tell me if it's possible.

    1. Have a folder called "OCR PDFs" on our network drive (everyone has access to).  In this folder there would be two subfolders, "Source" and "Destination."

    2. Staff can drop separate PDFs into the Source folder.

    3. The PDFs in the Source folder would be automatically OCR'd and transferred to the Destination folder.

    4. No files would be left in the Source folder and the newly OCR'd PDFs in the Destination folder would have the exact same file name as before.

    5. Staff can remove the finished PDFs from the Destination folder.

    If this is doable, what is the procedure?

    Omnipage 18 text file output format problem15.0

    Omnipage 18 text file output format problem

    I can scan 9 pages, OCR and put to a formatted text file.  

    The problem is that instead of a text file that looks like the report, I am getting random pages where each field is put on a new line.  This may start on any page and seems to stop with the next new page.

    I need all pages to be one line per record in the output text file.

    What am I doing wrong??
