CuneiForm OCR Review

CuneiForm OCR is a free, open-source application that converts scanned documents into editable text. It was originally developed for Linux and Windows, but it now has pre-built packages for OS X.

CuneiForm’s biggest strength is its ability to automatically detect page boundaries—no need to manually set margins or crop images before scanning them into CuneiForm (but you can do this if you want). The program’s user interface is also simple and easy to use.

Installation is elementary: just download the latest version from the developer’s website and extract the archive somewhere on your computer. Then open the terminal window and navigate to the folder where you extracted CuneiForm OCR.

The software uses a single-pass, two-stage process to recognize text in images. The first stage converts the image into a set of loose tokens, which are then cleaned up and organized in the second stage. CuneiForm currently supports English, German, French, and Spanish.

CuneiForm’s most significant advantage over Tesseract is that it can use both bitmap and vector images as input. This makes it suitable for converting documents into digital formats for reading on tablets or smartphones. It should also work well with small images, such as a business card or signboard.
