Stick words together

Unfortunately, the OCR feature in your toolkit for right-to-left languages is poor. Especially in version 14.1.53, the problems are more severe.
main problem is Sticking words together in right-to-left languages like Arabic.
Is there a method to adjust the spacing for the identified words?

Our company has not yet purchased your software. We have been testing your tool several times and have not yet liked it for our language. Both ms Word and OCR Ability have problems for right-to-left languages
To test OCR, the picture above is quite illustrative.
The words are sticking together after the recognition (second line in picture)

There is no attached image. Please provide it to us and also a code snippet illustrating how you are performing ocr (especially how you are extracting result from the ocr engine).
We are continuously working on improving Arabic and other rtl languages support so feel free to provide us any document or material revealing defect in our product. For confidential reason I will suggest you to send us such information through the helpdesk.

With best regards,

Loïc Carrère

I put the image I said in the first post ... a-full.jpg
And For testing I also used the executable file at the address below
\\GdPicture.NET 14\Samples\Bin\Ocr.exe

But for easier access, I attached the files
just run Ocr.exe and open image "1.jpg" , select arabic language and click "read page"
boom, the result are sticky

is there any method to control for space between words?
