performing OCR with google docs

Postby papagenic » Tue Jul 26, 2011 10:10 am

Hello,
i am facing a problem to perform OCR with google docs:
I installed droidscan lite and then added the pro version as an addon.
When I select share jpg, I choose doc upload ocr, I am taken to a "download info " page where I define the file name.
I press the login button on the bottom of the page , and this take me to the google doc login page indicating that I must authorize droidscan to manage my documents.
I click on the "authorize access button" ,and this gives me a code that I should copy and paste in my application.
I have however nowhere to copy this code into. when I try to switch to the droid scan application I find an info page about droid scan upgrade, but nowhere to copy the code. I cannot therefore proceed with the upload.

Can anybody help on this?

Thanks
papagenic

Thanks for the report.

We have had one previous report of this issue, and an update that fixes it is currently in beta testing. There is not yet a scheduled release for this fix but the wait should not be long, so please be patient. It is possible in the mean time to install the Google Docs app from Google, Inc and use that app for uploads.

how can be configured the language used in OCR with each doc that is uploaded?

can be a language set as default?

I ask this because my results with capital letter handwriting have been disappointing and i assume is a configuration issue

You can change this setting from Google Docs: http://docs.google.com

From the main screen:

1. Click "gear" icon in upper right
2. Choose "Settings" from menu
3. From the Settings screen choose a language

Google Docs like most OCR is optimized for mechanical fonts, not handwriting, so this may not help, but it does not hurt to experiment.
