Adding an OCR Open Converter

After running the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) installer (see Installing the Optical Character Recognition Module), you must add an open converter for the OCR module.

To add an OCR open converter

  1. Using an administrator account, connect to the Coveo Master server.

  2. If it does not already exist, create the [Index_Path]\Scripts folder. The default folder is C:\CES7\Scripts.

  3. Copy the [CES_Path]\OCR Module\OCRConversion7.js file to the [Index_Path]\Scripts folder.

    Note: With CES 7.0.5935– (September 2013), the OCR module is available only in a 32-bit version, on a 64-bit server. The module components are installed by default in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Coveo Enterprise Search 7\OCR Module folder.

    Important: The default OCR script configuration is a compromise between conversion completeness and performances and can prevent indexing some content in documents and possibly entire documents. Consider adapting the configuration to your needs (see Tuning the OCR Module).

  4. Create a source to index the OCR documents (see Adding a Source).

  5. Create an OCR open converter in CES:

    1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

    2. Select Configuration > Converters > Open Converters.

    3. In the Open Converters page, click Add.

    4. In the Add an Open Converter page:

      1. In the Name box, enter OCR as the name for the converter.

      2. In the Script File box, enter the path of the converter script file.

        Example: C:\CES7\Scripts\OCRConversion7.js

      3. In the Script Language drop-down list, select JScript.

      4. Click Apply Changes.

What's Next?

You must link the OCR open converter to document types in a document type set (see Associating the OCR Open Converter to Document Types).
