Enable automatic rotation during full text recognition

If recognition is unable to recognize any characters on a document because it is not orientated correctly, you can configure your project to rotate a document automatically. This option is project specific so all classes and documents processed by this project are processed in the same way. If you want different rotation behavior for different classes, see the Scripting Help for information about suppressing document orientation detection.

When automatic rotation is enabled during recognition processing, Server attempts to run recognition using the selected recognition engine on a document. If the first attempt is unsuccessful, the document is rotated and recognition is attempted again.

Tip Different recognition engines may have different rotation behavior so the best practice is that you test rotation to ensure that you get the desired results.

You can configure your project to automatically rotate any documents that are not orientated correctly by following these steps:

  1. On the Project tab, in the Configuration group, select Project Settings Project Settings icon.
  2. Click the General tab to view the general settings.
  3. In the Rotation group, select the Enable automatic rotation for value for the OCR option.
  4. Select how the rotated documents are saved.
  5. Optionally, click OK to close the Project Settings window.
  6. Save the changes to your project.
