The 0.7.1a version of OCRFeeder has been released.

This version introduces some tasks performed by Emergya as part of the GuadaLinfo Accessible project, such as:

  • Importation from a scanner device.
  • Copying text from the content boxes to the clipboard.
  • Users can now use the typical spell-checker dialog to correct mistakes in the text recognized by the OCR engines.

Other highlights include:

  • Rewritten ocrfeeder-cli (which also introduces a help method now)
  • Added the automatic detection of the Cuneiform OCR engine
  • Move the OCRFeeder modules to its own folder (so it is better organized and doesn’t conflict with other modules when installing it)

And some bug fixing:

  • Add the help option to ocrfeeder-cli (gb#630829)
  • Fix selecting all areas
  • Fix ellipsis and title in the queued events dialog
  • Prevent “invisible” boxes creation
  • Remove temporary images for the Tesseract OCR engine

A big thanks to the great GNOME translators for keeping OCRFeeder available in a number of languages and to Berto for making it available in Debian (which later got into Ubuntu as well).

Just as I was releasing the 0.7.1a version I realized the spell-checker.ui file was not being installed so I quickly did a tiny release, hence the 0.7.1a and not simply 0.7.1.
