Hello lads and ladettes :)


has anybody experience with the Lizardtech virtual printer? I'm a bit reluctant to use it as conversions seem to take quite some time. I've also had some difficulties with the character recognition.


cheers

I haven't used the Lizardtech Virtual Printer before. So far, I have stuck with djvubind:

https://github.com/strider1551/djvubind

It uses tesseract for OCR. But I have found that binding with OCR is extremely slow as well. I think this means that OCR is just going to be slow no matter which program you use. Mostly, I gave up on OCR for searchability and just ran it without OCR.

Has anyone got a link to the MS Windows version of LizardTech Virtual Printer? I'm wondering if it has been 'disappeared' :?: or has changed name as I'm not finding it ...
