Create OCR Input Plugin

Available: on-premises, cloud


This plugin is used for generating PNG files corresponding to input files. These input files may be tiff files or multipage tiff files. These PNG files are used for further processing and OCRing. It uses ImageMagick/GraphicMagick for converting files to PNG which will be used for OCRing.


You can select the Page Process module and navigate to the Create OCR input plugin configuration page as shown below:

This plugin has no configurable properties either on UI or in META-INF.

Steps of execution

The plugin uses tiff files as input. While executing, ImageMagick or GraphicMagick parameters are used to generate the OCR display PNG thumbnail files and the tiff files used for comparing and OCRing. These files are then copied to the batch instance folder and their respective entries are made into batch.xml file.


The plugin assumes the incoming batch has been imported properly and batch.xml is created successfully.


Following are a few common error messages received due to malfunctioning of the plugin:
