Inclusion of Indian classic ODIA language in the OCR tool in Acrobat Pro DC.
The mother-tongue of the people living in the state of Odisha is Odia language. Around 45 million (http://www.dataforall.org/dashboard/censusinfoindia_pca/) of people in India and abroad speak Odia language. Odia is a primarily spoken language in the Indian states of Odisha, parts of West Bengal, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Andhra Pradesh. Odia is the official language of Odisha and the second official language of Jharkhand.
The Union Cabinet of India classified Odia as classical language on 20-February-2014. (https://pib.gov.in/newsite/PrintRelease.aspx?relid=103967). So far Sanskrit, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Malayalam and Odia have been declared as classical languages in Indian subcontinent.
Therefore Adobe is requested to include this classical language ODIA in their OCR engine. It will be beneficial for Adobe and so too for the 45 million speaking Odia people.

Thank you very much Mr Gaurav Maheswari.
It's an essential requirement for the classical language like Odia. It will be a great help to the language if the OCR engine include Odia language.
In addition to this, if ADOBE is considering all the Indic languages to be a part of its ORC engine, it will be a boon to 1.33 billion people🙏.
Feedback for the inclusion of Odia language is noted and escalated to the team.

This will surely make the digitization of Odia books easy.

Odia unicode fonts are available. But this is the biggest need of the hour to include classical Odia language in Adobe's OCR engine. It is my earnest request to the the Adobe authorities to look into this matter seriously.

Would be great, if Adobe listens to this.

Thanks, Biswajit Mohapatra for this initiative.
Looking forward to the inclusion of our classical language ODIA in Adobe's OCR engine.Searching information in scanned Odia literature will be great.
Even more than OCR proper handling of Odia fonts in Acrobat is a greater need. Searching in Odia, annotating/paginating with Odia font etc. do not work in Acrobat now. It would help greatly if this issue can be handled on a priority basis.
ଓଡ଼ିଆ ଏକ ଅନୁପମ ଭାଷା। ଶାସ୍ତ୍ରୀୟତ। ସହିତ ଲୋକସହିତ୍ୟ ର ମିଶ୍ରଣ ହେଉଛି ଆମ ଭାଷାର ମହାନତା।
Thanks Acrobat for better platform for our mother tounge odia.
