Wonderful ORC Product!


Conclusion: Recognition is good in general but need tiny adjustment. Handwriting recognition should be improved.

To be frank, I’m a loyal user of Mr. Zheng’s product family. And this new product “iText" really amaze me.
To back it firmly, I did some test. From easy to hard are word typed in onenote, image from google image and handwriting in onenote.
It performs English recognition outstandingly. I just tried using it in my onenote notes, with Helvetica Neue as well as times new roman. the result is good but it could be better. quite often the app mis-recognized the case of the word like “Modeling a project” to “MOdeling a project”. Besides, it fails to recognize return symbol “\n” and space symbol.

As for image recognition, that’s perfect, except you have to do some little revise manually. And the “little” is really “little” within human’s scale lol.

However, when it comes to handwriting recognition, the test result is far from satisifying… It even recognized some symbols as Chinese characters, that’s funny. But I still can see its potentiality.

Anyway, it is still a good app, as before, as always.

Developer Response

Hi, glad to know you like iText :)

To be honest, the recognition work is done by Google. iText mainly work on optimizing the result from Google, e.g., remove extra space, capitalize the first letter, etc. And you're right, Google's handwriting ability isn't that good now.



我拍了书中的一段话,用 iText 来识别,结果相当准确啊,貌似全部对了。厉害了 Word 哥!
