Ocr service is able to recognize some frequent special characters like fractions (½, ¾), copyright and currency signs. However, fractions are not always retained as single unicode glyph and are usually expanded to multiple regular characters like 1/2.

If yours are not recognized correctly, please send the images to support e-mail so we can take a closer look.
