Greetings

I am trying to OCR some documents that contain transliteration of Sanskrit, meaning that they are Latin characters with a set of about 10 diacritic marks above and below them, which are not standard.

In order to make my OCR software (ReadIris Pro) learn the right characters, I need advice.

First, have I the correct product to do what I need to do?

Well, when you scan the document does it scan correctly?

Would installing the Sanserif Pali font (http://www.dharanipitaka.net/2011/2008/ ... nspali.ttf) help?

Leo - I'm not familiar with Readiris, I typically use ABBYY Fine Reader (and I use a PC). However, you likely need a 'language pack' for Readiris that includes all Extended Latin characters. English language does not. French, Spanish, German do.

Hope this helps.
