Tesseract OCR

Tesseract-OCR is the open-source optical character recognition (OCR) engine for the conversion of text within images to raw text output. This test profile relies upon a system-supplied Tesseract installation.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark system/tesseract-ocr.

Performance Metrics

Analyze Test Configuration:

Tesseract OCR v4.0.0.20181030

Time To OCR 7 Images

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 311 public results since 19 December 2018 with the latest data as of 25 August 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
