SYNOPSIScuneiform [--dotmatrix] [--fax] [--singlecolumn] [-f format] [-l language] [-o output] input
DESCRIPTIONCuneiform is an OCR system. In addition to text recognition it also does layout analysis and text format recognition. Cuneiform supports several languages.
- Use recognition mode optimized for text printed with a dot matrix printer.
- Use recognition mode optimized for text that has been faxed.
- Disable page layout analysis and assumes that the image consists of only one column of text.
- -f format
- Select output format. The following formats are available: html (HTML format), hocr (hOCR HTML format), native (native Cuneiform 2000), rtf (RTF format), smarttext (plain text with TeX paragraphs), text (plain text). The default is plain text.
- -l language
By default Cuneiform recognizes English text. To change the language use the command line switch -l followed by a language code (typically an ISO 639-2 three-letter code). The following languages are supported:
bul Bulgarian cze Czech dan Danish dut Dutch eng English est Estonian fra French ger German hrv Croatian hun Hungarian ita Italian lav Latvian lit Lithuanian pol Polish por Portuguese rum Romanian rus Russian ruseng mixed Russian/English slv Slovenian spa Spanish srp Serbian swe Swedish tur Turkish ukr Ukrainian
- -o output
If you do not define an output file with the -o switch, Cuneiform writes the result to a file [oq]cuneiform-out.format[cq]. The file extension depends on your output format.
INPUT FORMATCuneiform can process any single-page image that GraphicsMagick knows how to open. Please consult the gm(1) manual page for the comprehensive list of supported image formats.
