Projects / YAGF


YAGF is a graphical frontend for the cuneiform and tesseract OCR tools. It lets you open already scanned image files or obtain new images via XSane (scanning results are automatically passed to YAGF). Once you have a scanned image you can prepare it for recognition, select particular image areas for recognition, set the recognition language and so on. Recognized text is displayed in an editor window where it can be spell-checked, corrected, saved to disk, or copied to clipboard. YAGF also provides some facilities for a multi-page recognition.
