Select OCR language

This policy setting allows selection of OCR (Optical Character Recognition) language. If you enable this policy setting, the selected OCR language is used in OCR processing during the indexing of TIFF files. If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, the default system language is used.

Re-indexing is not initiated when you enable this policy and select the OCR language. This policy setting only applies to indexing of new files, unless re-indexing is initiated manually.
