This is a user interface for the command line tool OCRmyPDF.

It's main purpose is to provide users that are not used to command line tools access to OCRmyPDF's basic features.

You can use it to make PDF files that contain images with text (e. g. after scanning) searchable by adding an invisible text layer.

It supports more than 100 languages "out-of-the-box" (all languages that are installed with tesseract).

The splitter function extends the text recognition provided by OCRmyPDF. It adds the feature to separate scanned documents at separator pages - defined by a QR code - before text recognition. A QR code can mark a separator-only page that will be discarded. Alternatively, in Sticker Mode, the QR code can mark the first page of a new document and is retained.

Make sure to switch on "Read/write on removable storage devices" in the permission settings!
