sorry, but,,, Aug 29, 2003

With apologies for replying in English:

A TIF(F) file is a bit-mapped graphics file, which means that any words in it consist of only collections of pixels, and thus cannot be distinguished as words by any program less intelligent than a person (and all programs are less intelligent than a person).

It might be possible to scan in a TIFF image and then use an OCR (optical character recognition) program to 'fish out' the words so they could be counted, but although I've never tried it, I question whether it would be worth the effort or give a reliable result (would depend on what kind of an image you have).

I'm afraid that the best I can suggest is to take a pencil and paper, display the image on the screen and count the words the hard way.

Good luck!

... hat vollkommen Recht und Kenneth Unrecht.
Ich konvertiere immer meine Faxe in *.Tiff und lasse sie dann durch die OCR-M├╝hle laufen. Wenn die Vorlage nicht schlecht ist, k├Ânnen die Ergebnisse hervorragend sein.

PS: Und heutzutage noch mit Papier und Bleistift zu arbeiten, nein!

disagree


Es geht ja nur darum, die W├Ârter zu z├Ąhlen, wenn ich die Aufgabenstellung richtig verstehe. Ob mit oder ohne T├Âppfehler, die Leerstellen werden meist ganz gut erkannt

Sch├Âne Wochenendgr├╝├če

Ja, nur W├Ârter z├Ąhlen in Tif Aug 29, 2003

Hallo,

vielen Dank f├╝r die prompten Antworten. Ich will nur W├Ârter z├Ąhlen, aber eben nicht von Hand.
Also werde ich das Scannen ausprobieren.

Viele Gr├╝├če,
Stephanie

Wieso Scannen? Du hast doch bereits eine Tif-*Datei*?

Nicht scannen, sondern OCR-Software nutzen Aug 30, 2003

Vielen Dank f├╝r den Hinweis. Bei der Antwort habe ich ziemlich geschlafen. Also ich werde nat├╝rlich die OCR-Software einsetzen, um aus den mir vorliegenden Tif-Dateien zu verarbeitende Text-Dateien zu erstellen.

Nochmals Dank an alle und viele Gr├╝├če,
Stephanie
