AlfOCR Transform Module & Engine


An ACS Optical Character Recognition Module

The following module and engine provide the core features required to bring OCR capability to your Alfresco system.  It uses the new Alfresco Transform framework to implement an OCR engine.  The OCR engine utilizes several command line tools to extract, convert, clean, deskew, and eventually perform the optical character recognition of a scanned PDF/TIFF document.  Through the configuration of renditions, it can produce a plain text, HOCR, or a PDF document with properly located embedded text.  Once the rendition is created, you can use rules or other extension to perform further processing.
