Class TesseractOCRConfig

  • All Implemented Interfaces:

    public class TesseractOCRConfig
    extends Object
    implements Serializable
    Configuration for TesseractOCRParser.

    This allows to enable TesseractOCRParser and set its parameters:

    TesseractOCRConfig config = new TesseractOCRConfig();
    parseContext.set(TesseractOCRConfig.class, config);

    Parameters can also be set by either editing the existing file in, tika-parser/src/main/resources/org/apache/tika/parser/ocr, or overriding it by creating your own and placing it in the package org/apache/tika/parser/ocr on the classpath.

      • TesseractOCRConfig

        public TesseractOCRConfig()
        Default contructor.
      • TesseractOCRConfig

        public TesseractOCRConfig​(InputStream is)
        Loads properties from InputStream and then tries to close InputStream. If there is an IOException, this silently swallows the exception and goes back to the default.

      • setTesseractPath

        public void setTesseractPath​(String tesseractPath)
        Set the path to the Tesseract executable's directory, needed if it is not on system path.

        Note that if you set this value, it is highly recommended that you also set the path to the 'tessdata' folder using setTessdataPath(java.lang.String).

      • setTessdataPath

        public void setTessdataPath​(String tessdataPath)
        Set the path to the 'tessdata' folder, which contains language files and config files. In some cases (such as on Windows), this folder is found in the Tesseract installation, but in other cases (such as when Tesseract is built from source), it may be located elsewhere.
      • setLanguage

        public void setLanguage​(String language)
        Set tesseract language dictionary to be used. Default is "eng". Multiple languages may be specified, separated by plus characters. e.g. "chi_tra+chi_sim"
      • setPageSegMode

        public void setPageSegMode​(String pageSegMode)
        Set tesseract page segmentation mode. Default is 1 = Automatic page segmentation with OSD (Orientation and Script Detection)
      • setPageSeparator

        public void setPageSeparator​(String pageSeparator)
        The page separator to use in plain text output. This corresponds to Tesseract's page_separator config option. The default here is the empty string (i.e. no page separators). Note that this is also the default in Tesseract 3.x, but in Tesseract 4.0 the default is to use the form feed control character. We are overriding Tesseract 4.0's default here.
        pageSeparator -
      • setTrustedPageSeparator

        public void setTrustedPageSeparator​(String pageSeparator)
        Same as setPageSeparator(String) but does not perform any checks on the string.

      • setPreserveInterwordSpacing

        public void setPreserveInterwordSpacing​(boolean preserveInterwordSpacing)

      • getPreserveInterwordSpacing

        public boolean getPreserveInterwordSpacing()
        whether or not to maintain interword spacing.
      • setMinFileSizeToOcr

        public void setMinFileSizeToOcr​(long minFileSizeToOcr)
        Set minimum file size to submit file to ocr. Default is 0.
      • setMaxFileSizeToOcr

        public void setMaxFileSizeToOcr​(long maxFileSizeToOcr)
        Set maximum file size to submit file to ocr. Default is Integer.MAX_VALUE.
      • setTimeout

        public void setTimeout​(int timeout)
        Set maximum time (seconds) to wait for the ocring process to terminate. Default value is 120s.
