I am switching from DV2 to DV3 and try to find the best ocr configuration.
As I cannot control of the the compression rate anymore I try to find out the differences of letting Scansnap do the ocr job against DV3. As I understood they are both using abby but in different versions.
After some tests I cannot finally say which one does a better job regarding pdf quality and text recognition but there are some noticeable difference.
PDFs with ocr generated from Scansnap
seem to have a little bit worse ocr quality on some of my test documents
are being generated more quick
they are displayed faster within devonthink
The display speed seems to depend on a different compression algorithm as I can see that there is a quick but poor preview which is sharpening after a second.
I like this behavior and I would like to have this too using the integrated ocr conversion. Can I take control of this anywhere ? What are your experiences with ocr using Scansnap vs Devonthink ?
