Hi, we have been using the cloud ocr for quite some time now and are very happy with the results. Due to the high number of processing tasks that our application now has on a daily basis, we are in the process of switching to a server version of the Fine Reader 11 engine. Now our problem is that we can't reproduce the exact results we are getting from the Cloud OCR, as there are so many different command line parameters. The question: Would it be possible to specify the exact request parameters we send to the cloud OCR and get the exact command line parameters used internally? Thanks a lot!

Could you please specify your Application ID and what recognition settings you use and want to translate to FREngine?

Hi Oksana, thanks for the quick reply. This is the request we send to the cloud OCR:,english&imageSource=photo&correctOrientation=true&correctSkew=true&profile=textExtraction&xml:writeRecognitionVariants=true&exportFormat=pdfSearchable,xmlForCorrectedImage Is there a way I can send you our application id by pm or email?

In order to replicate these settings in FineReader Engine 11 you need to set the TextExtraction_Accuracy predefined profile using the LoadPredefinedProfile method of the Engine object and then set the following additional settings :

TextLanguage = German,English

GeometryCorrectionMode = GCM_Correct
CorrectOrientation = TRUE
CorrectSkew = TSPV_Auto

TextExportMode = PEM_ImageOnText

WriteNondeskewedCoordinates = FALSE
WriteCharacterRecognitionVariants = TRUE
