Hocr and searchable PDF

Hi,

I try to convert PDF (aspose pdf 11.9.0) with Hocr generated from Tesseract 3.0.4.
- With Html hocr : do it nothing ! PDF is same before the transform.
- With xhtml hocr : convert method throw FormatException.

you can reproduce the issue using the attached project.



Here is a sample of my code:

public
void Save(Func<int, Stream> getStream)

{
 
    using (var s = getStream(0))
    {
        this.asposeDoc.Convert(hocrTesseract);
        this.asposeDoc.Save(s);
    }
}
 
private string hocrTesseract(System.Drawing.Image img)
{
    using (var ocr = new TesseractEngine(@"(...)", "fra", EngineMode.Default))
    using (var bitmap = new Bitmap(img))
    using (var page = ocr.Process(bitmap))
    {
 
        return page.GetHOCRText(0);
  
    }
}
