This plugin adds a field to each image upload named 'OCR Text' containing the recognized text characters within the file.
This text can then be edited for accuracy and added to images to improve search and SEO results.
The OCR plugin requires PHP5 and two command line utilities: ImageMagick for preparing the images and Tesseract for the actual OCR.
All these programs must be manually installed on the server and executed by PHP.
This process, and consequently this plugin, is recommended only for advanced users.
Unpack and upload it to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
