What's the OCR use-case ?

Identifying or extracting info from AP invoices or other documents ?

Not sure if you knew, but GoAnywhere is now owned by HelpSystems.

You could use GoAnywhere to receive documents and our AutoMate Windows process automation software has an OCR component that can help extract info from the images.

Check it out and feel free to download a 30-day trial or reach out if you want to talk backend document processing.

Kristen was a great help. Learned a few things which is always a good thing.

The next step is to extract text from the image extracted. I have done some preliminary work on it. Will try to see if tesseract OCR will work for us.

Gordon and I met, and by testing in Qshell I was able to get the Java
command working by adding the path ""/java/PDFBox/" to the classpath
and to the other files, and by changing the semi colon to a colon in the Classpath.
It could be run in place if you cd to the /java/PDFBox directory, but
by adding the path the class can be run in other commands or apps.

java -Dsun.java2d.cmm=sun.java2d.cmm.kcms.KcmsServiceProvider -cp
/java/PDFBox/org.apache.pdfbox.tools.PDFBox ExtractImages
