The following table shows the enums available for the OCR Engine parameter.

MicrosoftDefault engine for document types.
Suited to typewritten documents and large documents up to 50 MB in size.
LazarusFaster than Microsoft and produces similar output.
GoogleFaster than Microsoft and suited to handwriting and documents that are 5 pages or fewer. The Google engine doesn't merge words into lines automatically. Use the Merge Lines preprocessor in your configurations to do so.
