GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 389277
We should use OCR in evince
Last modified: 2018-05-22 13:11:17 UTC
It would pretty slick to use OCR in evince to do text selection of the backends that don't support it (such as the tiff/image backends.) We wouldn't be able to rerender the glyphs for the selection, but we could extract the text.
That would also allow text search in PS documents and images.
That should be possible to print "invisible" glyph allowing to search and select the picture. I saw such feature at http://www.archimaine.fr/archimaine/index.php
