Vertical text alignment OCR

Can the OCR of "Microsoft Office Document Imaging" work on vertical text alignment ?

You can change text orientation in Microsoft Word, yes. And you can also OCR vertical text using ABBYY FineReader. It's really not that difficult. Have you tried Google yet?

Yes, I did lots of searches.

But I just want to know if Microsoft can OCR vertical text alignment.

Microsoft themselves won't OCR text for you.


However, you could rotate images before OCR-ing them.

I mean by "Can the OCR of "Microsoft Office Document Imaging" work on vertical text alignment ? "

um....the text are aligned vertically, so it's won't make a difference if you rotate the image.

vertical text alignment:

h
a
p
p
y

b
i
r
t
h
d
a
y


Thank you

I don't think I've ever used "Microsoft Office Document Imaging". But then again, I never install the full Office suite.

I think you're asking about vertical writing (Japanese comes to mind). Vertical alignment usually looks like this:



...which is very easy to OCR. For text written like that... well, I don't think many books (or sections of books) are written that way so it shouldn't be too much of a bother to add it manually.
