Document language

PaperOffice tries to recognize the document language in order to optimize the text recognition.

Set Method

Select "Fixed document language" or "Automatic language recognition" by clicking the appropriate option button with the left mouse button.

Fixed document language : If you define "Fixed document language" (fastest method), the document language from those you have installed will be used without the automatic speech recognition being activated.
Each installed language pack is used for text recognition. If more than one language is installed, all installed language packs are used for text recognition.

The document language is explicitly used in the second pass of word correction, which leads to precise and exact word recognition. Please note that the document languages ​​must be installed for this.
