The hyphen is recognized as character "Hyphen-minus" (U+002D), because this character represents hyphen in the ABBYY predefined languages. As we understand, you need the hyphen to be recognized as "En dash" (U+2013) or "Em dash" (U+2014). These symbols are not included into alphabets of the predefined languages, so it is not possible to do in Cloud OCR SDK but you can try another ABBYY product – ABBYY FineReader Engine. In FREngine you can create user defined language and add necessary characters to this language.

To investigate the issue please send to CloudOCRSDK@abbyy.com the following information:

  1. the image you recognize,
  2. the recognition settings you use,
  3. your Application ID.
