Tesseract.Net parameters

„Tesseract is extremely flexible, if you know how to control it. There is a large number of control parameters to modify its behaviour. While these change from time to time, most of them are fairly stable.“ (Tesseract ControlParams wiki)

There are two way how to set parameter: cofig file and through API

Config file

Config file is simple text file without BOM and with Unix end-of-line mark (on Windows you can use some advanced text editor e.g. Notepad++ to achieve this).

Config file should be located in your tessdata/configs directory. Your tessdata directory should be look like this:
language files

public void InitWithConfig()
    using (var api = OcrApi.Create())
        string[] configs = { "config.cfg" };
        api.Init(@"path_to_tessdata_folder", "eng", OcrEngineMode.OEM_DEFAULT, configs);

Tesseract-OCR API

You can set single parameter with API function SetVariable. E.g.

public void Init()
    using (var api = OcrApi.Create())
        api.Init(@"path_to_tessdata_folder", "eng");
        api.SetVariable("editor_image_xpos", "590");

In case you want (need) to set parameter during tesseract init you need to create arrays for parameters and their values. Here is example:

public void InitWithVariables()
    using (var api = OcrApi.Create())
        string[] variables = { "editor_image_xpos", "editor_dbwin_width" };
        string[] values = { "590", "80" };
        api.Init(@"path_to_tessdata_folder", "eng", OcrEngineMode.OEM_DEFAULT, null, variables, values);

Of course you can use also API function ReadConfigFiles (or ReadDebugConfigFiles) to read tesseract config files with non-init parameters.
