    Arrow KADMOS OCR plugin

    Hi folks,

    The option 'Download other language' in the KADMOS OCR-plugin for IrfanView seems not to be working. Am I the only one? If not, is there another way to get the Netherlands or Belgium Classifier?

    Thanks

    Well, thanks for your quick response, Bhikku. Never the less, it doesn't work on my system. The Belgium-one would be allright by me. The plugin tries to download allright, but it gets stuck

    I searched on the internet looking for the language-packs but even on www.rerecognition.ch (homepage of KADMOS) I couldn't find them. At http://hunspell.sourceforge.net there was only the US-version to be download. I also emailed to KADMOS, but no answer (yet).

    Maybe somebody knows where to download the right packages from?

    Maybe it is a firewall problem?

    Haha, I knew I could count on you!!
    I don't think it is my firewall, I never undergo such problems.
    Thanks a lot for that zip file. It works quit allright.

    In fact there's no improvement to encounter, but I'm satisfied now to know I did what I could to test this OCR-plugin (thanks to you).

    The ttfbe.rec file (Belgium language) seems to have no Dictionary like the English US pack (hunspell.dll).

    That must be handbe.rec I guess. Probably won't work properly without a dictionary. I deleted the other file already. Doesn't explain why you're not able to download them though. I had no trouble with the Nederlands files either.

    In my ocr_kadmos folder are 4 zipfiles:
    ISpellDE.zip
    TTFBE.zip
    TTFEU.zip
    TTFNL.zip
    I suppose those has to be language packages, but I can't unzip them.
    Further there is ttfus.rec and ttfbe.rec and handbe.rec (the two latter are your's).

    I can't load the handbe.rec into the classifiers of the OCR plugin, so I think your first one (ttfbe.rec) has to be the right one in the first place. Ttfus.rec works better then ttfbe.rec on my text-JPG.

    It isn't working for me either. The download takes its time, but when it is through the respective files are not in the required folder, nor anywhere else on my computer. I tried German, Italian and British English: no luck.

    Besides, the integrated auto-crop seems to have a problem, especially with the right hand border.

    Otherwise the recognition is good.

    The download/install of another language worked very well for me. I okayed it with my firewall quickly enough that it didn't time out the first time, it downloaded a big file, decompressed it, and all is fine. I have complete read/write permission where IrfanView is installed, which makes many things easier for me.

    This is a great plugin, I've used it fairly often already. I can screenshot-extract a short quotation from a protected e-book when I need to without jumping through so many hoops.
    Its: Belongs to "It"
    It's: Shortened form of "It is"

    The problem seems to lie with the KADMOS server. When I download with a broadband connection, everything is fine. However, when I download with modem connection (with which a get stable downloads of the same size from other sites) the download is interrupted again and again. I did direct downloads from the source directory with Opera and had to click on "resume transfer" approximately 10 times for a single file like ttfde.zip.
