Ability to OCR an image and use that content for search and metadata

As a user I would like the DAM to automatically read the text content in an image (similar as currently is possible with video assets) and make that content usable for search and tagging


Available since DAM release 97

In the world of product label graphics where there is a lot of text within them, it will be extremely beneficial if the system could automatically pull and index any text found in images such as JPGs and other image types especially when the text is in a flat image or when it exists in a non-text layer.  Bottom line: If there is text visible within an asset, it should be searchable.

It would be even better if the system can be trained to identify UPC code, and put it into appropriate metadata table for cataloging, or weight to weight field, address to address field  ... so on.
