KB00007088: Ephesoft Transact Does Not Extract Chinese Characters from the PDF417 Barcode Format


Ephesoft Transact does not extract Chinese characters from the PDF417 barcode format.

Ephesoft Transact Barcode Engines currently do not support Chinese characters; therefore, incorrect results are populated in Validation module. This is because Chinese is implemented at the OCRing level.

A feature request (TRAN-I-664) was submitted to support Chinese characters in the PDF417 barcode format.


To resolve this issue, use other APIs that support Chinese characters from the PDF417 barcode format to populate the correct values in the Validation module.
