WSS Search - PDF Images

  Asked By: Kari    Date: Sep 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 962

How would I search Adobe PDF scanned images, without an OCR solution?
We are about to install WSS with SQL 2005. I was hoping we could use
a "workaround" solution: - searching off of filenames, and/or perhaps
by - searching off of categories in a document list.

TIFF files are automatically indexed via OCR when using SPS Search. WSS
uses SQL Server full text indexing and will likely require a 3rd party
product of some kind.

SharePoint Portal Server contains a TIFF Index Filter that performs OCR
on TIFF files, and indexes the text in the file. There are some language

This is great for electronic faxes saved as TIFF files.
