A plugin for extracting text from attached images using OCR via Tesseract. This plugin adds a field to each image upload named 'OCR Text' containing the recognized text characters within the file. This text can then be edited for accuracy and added to images to improve search and SEO results.
The OCR plugin requires PHP5 and two command line utilities: ImageMagick for preparing the images and Tesseract for the actual OCR. These utilities must be manually installed on your server and executable by PHP. This process, and consequently this plugin, is recommended only for advanced users.
