I am currently using tesseract to OCR some jpeg files to txt files (Ubuntu 16.04). Typically this is ~500 files in one directory.
I know I can do this by making a text file with all the file names (savedlist.txt), and then do:
tesseract savedlist.txt output.txt
however output.txt is a single file with all the ocr results.
What I need is to be able to save the ocr results to individual txt files with the same file name as the original image file. For example:
input file: image456.jpeg
output file: image456.txt
I realize that ABBYY FineReader more recent versions can do this, but this is for a gratis project so I am looking for a free or inexpensive (less than $20) solution.
What I am looking for a software front-end or GUI using tesseract that can batch process ocr like this, all in one batch operation.
A command line solution to do this would also be OK. If off-topic here, I can ask this on another site but I didn't want to post on two sites at the same time.
