If Vertical or Inverted Text Is Not Recognized


A fragment of recognized text may contain a large number of errors if the orientation of the fragment was detected incorrectly or if the text in the fragment is inverted (i.e. light text is printed on a dark background).

To solve this problem:

  1. In the Image window, select the area or the table cell that contains vertical or inverted text.
  2. On the Area Properties pane (right-click the area and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to make the pane visible), select:
    • the direction of the text from the Direction of CJK text drop-down list


  • Inverted from the Inversion drop-down list
  1. Run the OCR process again.

For more information about areas, see "If Areas Are Detected Incorrectly."
