Is there an option for spell checking of the text recognised by the OCR?

If we understand you correctly your question is related to automatic verification of the results. Unfortunately, FineReader Engine 11 hasn`t this option in automatic mode

For making verification in manual mode we can suggest you using our sample VisualComponents (Samples\Visual CS\VisualComponents).

ABBYY FineReader Engine Visual Components provide graphical user interface similar to the interface of ABBYY FineReader. With the Visual Components you can easily create an application for viewing and editing images, editing and verifying recognized text and monitoring document processing (find more information in our Developer's Help → Visual Components Reference).

Using this sample you can verify and correct the recognition results. Please do the followings:

  • open your image in the application,
  • recognize the document via "Read",
  • use "Verification" for the correction of the recognition results,
  • export the results to the required formats.

Actually I am using the OCR SDK to detect text in some images automatically and send the recognised text to an other function of the code. So i need an automatic step to check the spelling of the text without interferring with the application.
