Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Happy Automation with ElectroNeek!!



I am using google OCR. It is working great for me. Where the other OCR engines are concerned, I am not able to use them. Maybe because I don’t have their access.

I would love to know, how to get the access to other OCR engines? So that I can explore them as well. Then I’ll be able to make best comparison between them as well.

As far as I can recall, I have never been able to use OCR either. It requires credentials that I don’t have.

Which OCR engine is better for scanned PDFs that have hand written text?

@cris-dsc You can use Google/Microsoft cloud OCR. you dont need to have any credentials, just keep it ‘Not set’
