If a PDF have a text layer, will Cloud OCR use that text layer or re-do the OCR?

As the text layer does not always correspond to the image layer, ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK will re-do the OCR and use the text layer to improve the recognition quality.

In ABBYY FineReader Engine it is possible to select one of these modes:

  • Both text and image layer of the source PDF file are used.

  • Only text layer of the source PDF file is used, the image layer is not used.

  • Text layer of the source PDF file is not used, the image layer is recognized.
