Chapter 13. Paper Capture > Working with Suspects

Working with Suspects

Occasionally, Acrobat's Capture plug-in has trouble interpreting a word or character. In such cases, Acrobat substitutes what it thinks is correct and marks the word or character as a suspect. This section shows you how to review the suspects within a captured PDF.

To find and review suspects

1.
Choose Document > Recognize Text Using OCR > Find All OCR Suspects (Figure 13.15).

Figure 13.15. You can find one suspect at a time, or all suspects in the captured text.


The suspect words appear in the Acrobat window, outlined with red rectangles (Figure 13.16).

Figure 13.16. The suspect words are outlined in red in the Acrobat window.


2.
Choose Document > Recognize Text Using OCR > Find First OCR Suspect.

The Find Element dialog box opens (Figure 13.17). The first suspect element appears in the middle of the Find Element dialog box.

Figure 13.17. The Find Element dialog box displays the suspect word.


3.
To accept Acrobat's interpretation of the text in the Find Element dialog box, click the Accept and Find button.

If you don't accept the change to the suspect, you can leave the bitmapped image in place, but you won't be able to edit it later. It is best to accept the interpretation so that Acrobat will transfer the suspect into editable text, and then you can use the TouchUp Text tool to edit the text.

4.
Continue until all suspects are addressed.
