I was looking for a way to implement an OCR system with Nuxeo, found this Add-on Nuxeo Ocr before I can deploy the project I need to install many dependecies the problem is the commands are on Linux, and I'm using Windows as server.

This project hasn't changed for five years and there is no short/mid term improvements scheduled.

I believe tesseract remains a reference open source engine (there are few in that field). There is an exe for tesseract https://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/downloads/list

So you can also easily write a commandline using the commandline service of Nuxeo Platform and then call this commandline from a work that will be ran asynchroneously.

One of the challenges is to know what you want to do with the ocr: decorate the pdf (you might need to use pdfbox lib), display it in overlay in a custom UI, etc..

Alain ESCAFFRE Thank you for your feedback. It would be awesome if there's an example using commandline service and works. I checked the documentation I can't find any/
