Pdfalto XML parser does not check the size of the spaces (which could be zero)

See original GitHub issue

Looks like I did everything as it was written in a structure. After spending many hours due training modules I still find out, that my sentence with words has spaces in word. first of all my straining structure was like this:

  1. ./gradlew train_fulltext
  2. java -Xmx1024m -jar grobid-trainer/build/libs/grobid-trainer-0.6.0-SNAPSHOT-onejar.jar 0 fulltext -gH grobid-home
  3. java -Xmx1024m -jar grobid-trainer/build/libs/grobid-trainer-0.6.0-SNAPSHOT-onejar.jar 1 fulltext -gH grobid-home

After proceeding it I get such a result:

                <head>Uni ka lūs eks po na tai</head>
                <p>Mo kan tis ke ra mi kos stu di jo je ir vė liau, vi są 4ąjį de šimt me tį, me ni nin ko dar bų sti lis ti ka la biau siai at spin dė jo liau dies dir bi nių tra di ci jų plė to tę.

for example instead of: <head>Uni ka lūs eks po na tai</head> should be <head>Unikalūs eksponatai</head>

OK. So far we have #48 and #564 related to the same issue.

This is an issue for pdfalto I think, we probably don’t want to look at the <SP> elements in PDFALtoSaxHandler because it would introduce a hack and a dependency to a pdfalto “error”.

In pdfalto, a space character always introduces such a space and breaks words, but in practice there are almost no space character in a PDF stream, so spaces have to be inferred from the positions of the characters/tokens. One issue is the diacritics (apparently lot’s in this PDF), when a diacritic occurs, we have to recompose the characters and to join separated tokens to create actual words.

The relevant code in pdfalto is there -> but the challenge is that fixing the heuristics for a particular PDF will likely create errors in other PDF 😄 So the first step is maybe to create a set of PDF with a variety of space issues to improve the robustness of pdfalto.
