PDF with korean standard font not recognized
Hi, I am having trouble with pdfs containing korean text. This korean text is using two different fonts. One of those is embedded into the pdf, the other seems to be a well-known standard font family called "Gulim", which is not embedded. To even see the text locally, I had to install the supplemental korean font package (windows optional feature). Both the prebuilt-read and prebuilt-invoice models (in all api versions) read the embedded font just fine, but the text using the standard font is completely missing. Is there anything I can do about this? Do I have to enable CJK fonts somewhere for this to work? As a workaround, I have identified that a rendered version of the pdf does indeed work, but I would prefer using pdfs due to the smaller file size, faster processing time, and since I also use location data in physical dimensions, I do not have to convert all points from pixels to inches.
Hi @Martin P,
Thank you for clarifying. You are correct that the font would need to be installed on the machine doing the actual processing.
Since you do not have direct access to the machine in the cloud, you may not be able to install the "Gulim" font on the machine. In this case, you can try using a different font that is widely recognized and supported, as I mentioned earlier.
Regarding the suggestion to embed the fonts, I understand that you may not have control over the creation of the PDFs. In this case, embedding the fonts may not be a viable solution.
If none of the suggested solutions work for you, I would recommend contacting Microsoft Azure support for further assistance. They may be able to provide additional guidance or suggest alternative solutions.
I hope this information helps. Thank you.
