I’ve just OCR’d a PDF with 7 pages of legal text with a Keyboard Maestro macro. The conversion is nearly perfect and was very fast. This feature makes KM a very good investment.

Post CAT formatting? Mar 29, 2020

The issue we’ve found with OCR tools (and the reason why many LSPs forbid their use) is that post-CAT tool translation, formatting becomes a nightmare. This is especially the case if matching formatting with the OCR tool.

The only work around we found was to OCR export as plain text, clear formatting, insert correct formatting, run through CAT and then do a FE before delivery.

Let us know what the OCR macro results are like post-TR

I agree. From experience, you need a very clear .pdf document to start with before running OCR.

I personally think that SmartCat OCR program does a good job but, like everything else realted to OCR, it is not perfect.

Nice additional feature Mar 31, 2020

Rather than buying an expensive OCR suite for occasional use, this new feature of Keyboard Maestro (based on the open source Tesseract software) is a nice additional feature to quickly OCR a dialogue box, a single page or whatever you have to translate.
