Language Pack for Standard/Tesseract OCR
All versions of the SimpleIndex software include OCR with the Standard/Tesseract OCR engine. The SimpleIndex download only includes a limited set of languages with the installation. If the language you would like to OCR with SimpleIndex isn’t one of the languages included then you can download your required language(s). Once you do this you will be able to pick the language that you want to read with the Standard/Tesseract OCR engine.
- Go to the Tesseract Language Download Site
- Select the language you want and download or download all the language
- Copy the language files (unzip if downloading more than one language) to this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimpleIndex\Tesseract\v3.04\tessdata
- Close and Reopen SimpleIndex and the downloaded languages will now be selectable
