Word optical recognition problems (pdf)

28.03.2024, 15:31

Is there a way to correct a misrecognition of a word in pdf documents?
For example, if the word "therefore" is recognised as "thwwwwops", is there a way to correct it afterwards when the word is sorted into a specific code or variable?

Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, it is not possible to edit the text (OCR) layer of PDF documents in MAXQDA. For this reason, it is important to first verify the quality of the PDF document before importing it into MAXQDA.

Best regards on behalf of the MAXQDA support team,
