Optical Character Recognition (OCR) takes a picture of text, whether it’s a scanned document or a PowerPoint slide, and converts the image of text into usable and searchable text. The OCR-ed text is shown within the Media Player’s Sidebar.
For an effective OCR to take place, we recommend the slides be in full-screen presentation mode.
Accessing OCR Technology in the Media Player
OCR technology is an automated part of the video production process. When you complete a recording using the Hardware Appliance or Software Capture, the Optical Character Recognition process will begin. In about 20 minutes, the Slide Content will appear in the YuJa Media Player.
- Open the desired video from Manage Media in the YuJa Media Player.
- Select Open Sidebar to see the Slide Contents in the HTML5 Media Player.
