Iron Tesseract can read many image formats, and also PDF documents. This feature is not possible with conventional free Tesseract engines.

OcrInput offers the option for PDF characteristics to be automatically corrected if scans are bad quality.

Developers may specify to read and entire PDF, a selection of pages or a single crop area.
