OCR: OCR installation with scan through Gespage


To use OCR with Gespage, you need to use a third party software named Teseract.

We are using the following version for this software: tesseract-ocr-w64-setup-v5.0.0.20211201.exe 



This procedure gets three steps:


  1. Tesseract installation
  2. Configure the process
  3. Add the process in the scan profile
