MODI Tiff Extensions Format RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using MODI to OCR Tiff Images. On a different machine (without MODI installed) I need to be able to retrieve the positions of the OCR'ed words (this is so I can highlight words when they have been found by a search process).

    I understand Microsoft has registered several private TIFF tags and I believe I need to read tag 37679 to get the text and 37681 to get the positions. I've found a brief explanation of how tag 37681 is formatted here:

    The problem is this is very sparse (and the sample code hard to follow). I also downloaded MSOfficeTIFFFormatGuidance - this again says very little about tag 37681.

    Can anyone give me any more information on how the data in Tag 37681 is formatted. Thanks.

    Cheers, Mike
