The L_OcrPage_SetRecognizedCharacters method will accept space characters in the LEADTOOLS Advantage engine. However, these space characters will be used when generating the final document (PDF) and might affect the final output. Therefore, it is not recommended that you insert space characters when using the LEADTOOLS Advantage engine.

Note: You should call L_OcrPage_FreePageCharacters on the 'pageCharacters' parameter to free its allocated memory when no longer needed.
