ignoreCase method

Class: TextRegionSettingsPlatform: ImagesLanguage: Java SDK:

Define that the pattern should be case insensitive.

This related to the pattern string specified in the call to the TextRegionSettings constructor. If this method is called with a value of false, then the case of the text in the pattern must match the case of the corresponding character in the image text. If it is called with a value of true, then a lowercase or uppercase literal in the pattern will match either case in the image text. Since the pattern also serves as a hint, when ignoreCase is false, the OCR result will use the pattern case to disambiguate lowercase and uppercase characters that are similar (such as lowercase and uppercase S and Z).

For more information see Eyes OCR support .

This feature is experimental. Please note that the functionality and/or API may change.


TextRegionSettings value = obj.ignoreCase(ignoreCase);


The pattern case will match either lowercase and uppercase text found in the OCR.
The pattern case will only match the OCR text if the case matches.
