One of the great features is the seamless integration with the main resource. Anyone used to tesseract will find that gImageReader preserves all the core functions of the OCR software. More-so, the tool strikes a good balance between functionality and accessibility, as new users will find it incredibly easy to start processing documents.

Rotating pages is supported, as is zooming in or out

The program allows several operations on the source documents. These include rotating views by 90 degrees, zooming in or out, as well as modifying basic image controls. Adjusting the brightness and contrast is a great addition, as is the resolution modifier, which can be employed to improve the visibility of some files.

gImageReader integrates very well with tesseract and processing documents is performed with a simple click on the “Recognize all English” topside button. The output text is dumped in a small panel beside the source document and users are free to perform adjustments, as well as to double check the process.

The software complements the core tool and makes OCR processing a very intuitive and pleasant task

Summing up, gImageReader is a simple GUI front for the popular tesseract utility, which does not remove any of the power of the main application.
