  1. As the title implies, I need a step in a script that allows me to check if the tag is in fact a word. Context: Creating a script to import pdf documents into a FM DB. Using Applescript, selecting PDF's text, converting to list of all words and sending this to a FM DB record as well as the PDF's name and location in finder. Script then imports the PDF to a container field for future reference. List of words are then set as documents tags. After import can search tags and show related documents. Problem: Problem is OCR is not perfect. Can get strings of greksfhqr[oif or wordsmashedtogether both of which are treated as a word. I need to check is the string is in fact a word. If true, set as tag, if false >>future magic I have not yet even tried to figure out<<. This goal is to just solve the first part of the if function: if true, set as tag. Possible Solutions Tried/Considered: 1) send $tag to field and have script execute "check spelling" of field. Requires user interaction. Want to be able to run this check without need of UI 2) create a web portal with the word and check result of query to website. This has potential if query and response can happen programatically. Running query through web browser is VERY SLOW. Imagine checking very word of a 20,000 word document. 3) utilize a shell script in conjunction with applescript. This could work except that dictionary.app is not set for applescript. there is a dictionary shell with a text file of many words in usr/shared/dict/words.txt ... but the words are from 1930es and this file may not be very updatable. Could try importing these words into a subtable creating the DB's own dictionary. Wondering if there is an easier way tho. Plee: Any suggestions? How would you resolve this issue? Cheers, Marcus

  3. Hi, I am undertaking a massive project of converting dozens of PDF books into text-searchable PDF's, then having the text extracted by outsourced employees into their various categories, and then importing them into an FM database for personal use. The problem as you know with OCR, is that words often come out with irregular spacing such as this text; O n e c o p y of Sheet 7 (page 55) p e r g r o u p of four. O n e paper fastener for each group. O n e dice p e r g r o u p The regular FM spellchecker won't pick up the the mistakes if letters are spaced out, each by themselves. Other applications exist to do this job such as Afterscan but copying 200,000 text blocks from a PDF, then to afterscan and then into excel makes it a lot more work. Is there an OCR spell check Plug inj For filemaker pro? Or maybe even when for excel, where all teh text will first be copied before being imported? Thank you so much for your advice.
  4. I am running a script with full access privileges the last line of which is intended to check a found set. When the script gets to that step it says I dont have the access privileges to correct a spelling error in a record. My research to date told me that a script running with full access would override the security setting in the privilege set. Is this an exception or is there more to it? Putting "exit script" on the end solved the issue, as at presently advised
