    converting form to spreadsheet

    I have a client that routinely gets a printed report containing upwards of 50 pages of information in the same format as the attached.

    I've downloaded OmniPage 19 for testing, but have been unable to figure out how to create the zones so that this document is translated correctly into an Excel spreadsheet.  The documentation is not very useful regarding this topic. 

    Can anyone provide any guidance on how to do this?

    Reducing OCR processing time with more cores

    Reducing OCR processing time with more cores

    A customer of mine is having a hard time with the amount of time it takes to process their documents with Omnipage. Their setup now is:

    - Intel i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition
    - 3.0 GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo)
    - 8-Core
    - 20 MB Cache
    - 8 GB RAM
    - HDD 7200 RPM
    - Windows 7 Professional

    Would anyone know if adding more processing cores reduce the OCR-processing time or is Omnipage limited to the amount of cores it uses? Also, would adding more memory (greater than 8 GB) also reduce the OCR-processing time?

    I have done my diligent searching on the forums but couldn't find anything to answer these questions.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    Only the Administrator profile can see the scanner

    I'm at the end of my rope with this software and have spent nearly 3 full days getting it to work as intended, or by work around.


    My problem ?  ONLY the Administrator profile can see the scanner.  The system is set up in a public area in an education environment.


    When I log on as a regular user, the Scanner cannot be seen by Omnipage, nor does the Scanner Wizard work.  Yet, I have the Epson Software installed, and it has NO problems seeing the scanner.    So Epson = Here's your scanner ! and Omnipage = No Scanner.


    What's the deal with this thing ?

    Saving Pages as Barcode number on scanned page



    I would like to know if it is possible to setup a workflow that takes a loaded PDF file with a barcode on it and then save the file as that barcode number?

    Basically the user will scan a form with a barcode on it. The file will automatically save to a scans folder with a file name of scan001.pdf.  My current workflow will save the file to a folder called processed scans and the file name will be saved as the original filename but with a timestamp included. Can I somehow save the output file as the barcode number that resides on the form?

    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated

    Updates for Omnipage 181

    Updates for Omnipage 18

    My Omnipage 18.0, was installed in 2011.  I tried to find updates, from both the product and the Nuance website.  The former reports nothing; the latter has an error--when you click on "Here" link in the message "Downloads  Software updates, drivers, service packs and patches.  Here" it goes to a page that reads "Unfortunately, the content your are looking for can not be found."

    Does this mean there have never been any updates, service packs or patches, or that the website that provides them is not accessible from the Nuance website?

    Form data extraction: "Invalid zone coordinates"

    Form data extraction: "Invalid zone coordinates"

    Hi all

    Does anyone know what "Invalid zone coordinates" refers to for form data extraction.  I'm trying to run a new data extraction project based on a previously successful one but I can't seem to get past this error in the recognition stage.  PDF form template has been configured and matches the scanned images. Zone template in Options is set to either "Form" or a custom template I made up for a full page A4 form.

    Omnipage 18 Pro, Win7 x64

    Can't load multiple files for OCR

    Can't load multiple files for OCR

    I bought a Canon Canon imageFORMULA DR-C225, and I've scanned a lot of documents. Now I'm ready to OCR the documents, but I can load only one file at the time. I have Omnipage 18 SE, that was bundled with the scanner.

    When I open Omnipage, I can choose to «Load files.» That means plural, files, not file. I can not choose several files  by holding either shift, CTRL, or for that sake Alt. 

    Does this have anything to do with my version being a SE?

    API_PARAMETER_ERR when calling kRecLoadImgM

    API_PARAMETER_ERR when calling kRecLoadImgM


    I can use kRecLoadImgF but want to use kRecLoadImgM because my files will be in a DB. I'm trying to test kRecLoadImgM without the DB, just by loading a file as a byte array, but no luck. Using C#, my code is:

    Image image = new Bitmap(fileName);
                                byte[] bitmap = (byte[])converter.ConvertTo(image, typeof(byte[]));

                                IMG_INFO imageInfo = new IMG_INFO();
                       = image.Width;
                       = image.Height;
                       = (int)Math.Round(image.HorizontalResolution);
                       = (int)Math.Round(image.VerticalResolution);
                                imageInfo.BitsPerPixel = (ushort)Image.GetPixelFormatSize(image.PixelFormat);

                                rc = RecAPI.kRecLoadImgM(0, bitmap, imageInfo, out hPage);
                                if ((rc != RECERR.REC_OK))
                                    Info.Text += "Error type = " + rc.ToString() + "\nError code = " + rc.ToString("X") + "\n";

    RC is equal to API_PARAMETER_ERR
