OCR Shop XTR™ Lite is a command-line interface driven OCR program based on the same ScanSoft® recognition technology as OCR Shop XTR and the OCR Shop XTR/API.
OCR Shop XTR Lite comes with an installer, which places the executable and resource files (such as language, character set, and licensing files) on the system.
Operating System Support:
|Sun Solaris™ SPARC® (Solaris™ 2.7+)|
|Linux™ x86 (Kernel 2.0 and higher)|
One input file is passed to the program at a time. Supported input formats include:
- Multipage and single page TIFF files
- GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)
- JPEG (Joint Photographics Experts Group File Interchange Format)
- PDF (Portable document format)*
- PS (Postscript)*
- PBM (Portable BitMap)
- PNG (Portable network Graphics Format)
- PPM (Portable PixMap)
- SGI-RGB (Silicon Graphics image file format)
* PDF and PS input are licensed as add-on features.
In each run of OCR Shop XTR Lite, one output file is generated. A multipage page input file will result in one multipage output file, just as a one page input file will result in one output file.
The output format is ASCII or Unicode text.
An output file will overwrite any pre-existing file of the same name.
Recognition and processing:
Preprocessing and recognition options are set to fully automatic, in order to provide the best results for a wide variety of input images.
Documents are recognized in English by default, but over 50 different languages are available. The user may specify one or more languages on the command-line.
OCR Shop XTR Lite is licensed to a specific machine based on that computer's machine ID. Licensing controls the number of concurrent instances permitted, as well as features such as PDF/PS input and languages.
The command-line options for OCR Shop XTR Lite include the output filename and the input filename:
xtrclilite <inputFileName> <outputFileName> [options]
Available options are:
Language used for recognition; multiple languages from the same code page may be specified and should be separated by commas.
|-o unicode|ascii||Output format|
Special options provide help and version information:
Running OCR Shop XTR Lite to process an image is equivalent to running OCR Shop XTR with the following command-line:
ocrxtr -out_text_name=[outputFileName] [inputFileName]
OCR Shop XTR Lite returns zero on success or a negative number on error.
Errors may be caused by invalid input files, missing parameters, or an invalid license.
Multiple languages may be used at once, if they come from the same code page. If a language is not supported by ASCII text, Unicode output must be selected.
During software evaluations, all languages are available. On purchase, OCR Shop XTR Lite comes with one language; additional languages may be purchased.
