Subject [jira] [Created] (CTAKES-189) GSoC: Implement OCR/Tika to standardize text input for cTAKES
Date Thu, 11 Apr 2013 14:21:17 GMT
Pei Chen created CTAKES-189:

             Summary: GSoC: Implement OCR/Tika to standardize text input for cTAKES
                 Key: CTAKES-189
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CTAKES-189
             Project: cTAKES
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 3.0-incubating
            Reporter: Pei Chen
             Fix For: 3.2

I am proposing to have a component in cTAKES that is capable of taking in various types of
content (PDF, Scanned JPG's, Word, XLS, TXT, etc.), extracting the text content before passing
it on to cTAKES for NLP processing.
There are currently open source libraries such as TIKA, JavaOCR as a starting point but I
have not found a centralized lib that also incorporates all of the above including OCR into
the flow easily.
