I have more or less the opposite problem: I'd like to combine a bitmap
image and an ALTO file into a PDF document with searchable text. I think
I have found the necessary Python packages to build the desired PDF (as
), and parsing the ALTO xml to get the text elements and their positions
on the page is certainly feasible. However I'd rather skip the mandatory
debugging step in the development process and use well-tested tools if I
can find them :-)
Any pointers someone would like to share?
