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 99 public results since 19 December 2018 with the latest data as of 3 June 2024.

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.
