With the use of the LEAD Engine for OCR, you are provided with powerful engine settings that allow you to address noise and filter what is being recognized.

Three in particular which you should keep in mind are:
  • Recognition.Words.DiscardLowConfidenceWords set to true by default
  • Recognition.Words.DiscardLowConfidenceZones set to false by default
  • Recognition.Words.LowWordConfidence set to 50 by default

Using these settings, you can manipulate the confidence to allow the removal of unwanted words. The documentation for these settings can be found here: https://www.leadtools.co...ead-engine-settings.html

When loading the below test image into the LEADTOOLS OCR demo and recognizing the page, you will see the results do not come out correctly. In particular, the noise present in the image is providing incorrect output when recognized automatically through the use of the AutoZone method . The OCR demo can be accessed after installing the LEADTOOLS SDK and is found at the following default installation location: C:\LEADTOOLS 20\Shortcuts\OCR - MICR - ICR - OMR\.NET Framework Class Libraries\Main OCR Demos\OCR 64-bit Demo.lnk

To correct this through the use of the OCR demo, you can change the Low word confidence value to 80, and set the Discard zones with low confidence option to true.

With these changes, we now get suitable output which eliminates the presence of the unwanted noise.

You can access these settings in your own application by adding the following code after the OCR engine has been start. For more information on how to incorporate the use of confidence in your application you can look here: https://www.leadtools.co...onfidence-reporting.html
ocrEngine.Startup(null, null, null, null);
IOcrSettingManager settingManager = ocrEngine.SettingManager;
settingManager.SetBooleanValue("Recognition.Words.DiscardLowConfidenceZones", true);
settingManager.SetBooleanValue("Recognition.Words.DiscardLowConfidenceWords", true);
settingManager.SetBooleanValue("Recognition.Words.LowWordConfidence", true);
