IOcrSpellCheckManager Interface

Manages the spell checking sub system of the OCR engine.
public interface IOcrSpellCheckManager 
@interface LTOcrSpellCheckManager : NSObject 
public class OcrSpellCheckManager 
public interface class IOcrSpellCheckManager 
class IOcrSpellCheckManager: 

Access the IOcrSpellCheckManager being used by an IOcrEngine through the IOcrEngine.SpellCheckManager property.

LEADTOOLS OCR supports spell checking and correction through the use of external dictionaries. The value of IOcrSpellCheckManager.SpellCheckEngine acts as a global switch to use a particular spell checker or turn spell checking off.

If the value of this property is OcrSpellCheckEngine.None, then no spell checking is performed during the recognition process. When you set the value of this property to one of the supported engines, then the spell checking system is enabled and correction will be performed during the recognition process.

When you set the IOcrSpellCheckManager.SpellCheckEngine property to a value other than None, the OCR engine will automatically try to load the spell checker requested and queries the language dictionaries found on your machine. You can change SpellCheckEngine at any time during the life of the IOcrEngine depending on your application needs. For example, to disable spell checking while recognizing certain types of documents only and then re-enabling it for other types.

The OCR engine allows you to turn spell checking off (set SpellCheckEngine to OcrSpellCheckEngine.None). The additional spell checker support is as follows:

Use IOcrSpellCheckManager.GetSupportedSpellCheckEngines to query the spell check engines supported by the current OCR engine at runtime.

The default LEADTOOLS installation will only ship with OcrSpellCheckEngine.Native dictionaries for the following languages: English, German, French, Spanish and Italian. Additional language dictionaries are included in the LEADTOOLS Additional OCR Features setup available at https://www.leadtools.com.

Use IOcrSpellCheckManager.GetSupportedSpellLanguages to query the spell check languages (dictionaries) installed on the current machine at runtime. Use IOcrSpellCheckManager.GetAdditionalSpellLanguages to query the extra spell check languages (dictionaries) available to the engine at runtime but not installed (included in the Additional OCR Features Setup described above).


This example will set various properties of the spell checking system.
