Problem description: Currently it is not possible to insert text that is obtain directly through a scanner's OCR program.
Steps to reproduce:
Current behavior: LibreOffice is only able to insert picture through the scanner but not editable text.
Expected behavior: Text inserted directly into the active document from the scanner.
Operating System: All
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
There is no protocol for OCR software to be called from LO and return data there.
Most OCR software has "export to StarWriter/OpenOffice" option which should work with LO. Is that not enough?
this feature does not exist in any OOo/LibO/AOO release.
This was confirmed too soon. Just because it doesn't exist, doesn't mean LO will make this. I set back to Unconfirmed. let' see of there's argument for this.
LO is not OCR program. Microsoft has a separate Office Document Imaging.
I read the comments 1-3 as WONTFIX.
