10.6: How to use OCR with HP multi-function printers

Thanks for the tip. An 'out-of-the-box' limitation is support for multi-page TIFF's, however, if you install libTIFF (BEFORE installing tesseract), you not only will get support for multi-page TIFF's, but also support for compressed TIFF's

Get libTIFF 3.9.2 here: http://download.osgeo.org/libtiff/
libTIFF home page: http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/

note, this is mentioned in the FAQ: http://code.google.com/p/tesseract-ocr/wiki/FAQ

Does it support multi-page tiff files?

Only with 2.03 and later, and only if you have libtiff installed. See Compressed Tiff above.
