Can an OCR region contain underscores?

Unfortunately, OCR regions will not allow underscores to be read into the data grid. The underscore can be confused with underlining. When performing OCR, the images have to be cleaned up, and typically underlining is removed so that the engine can recognize the actual text. Thus this is the reason behind not recognizing the underscore within the text.
