System Settings for OCR

To enable optical character recognition (OCR) for parsing and verification functions in TrueLog Explorer, you must generate a font database using Silk Performer system settings.

Optical character recognition relies on font (or pattern) databases to recognize fonts and text styles in bitmaps. The default set of fonts covers most scenarios, however in some situations you may want to add additional fonts or font styles. A new database should be generated whenever new fonts are added or removed from the system.

Including too many fonts in the database can slow down processing and lead to contradictory reading, so it is recommended that you only include those fonts that are used in the bitmaps from which you will be capturing text strings.
