Searchable Documents / OCR (Optical Character Recognition)

Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, is a technology that enables you to convert different types of documents, such as scanned paper documents, PDF files or images captured by a digital camera into editable and searchable data.


Imagine you’ve got a paper document - for example, magazine article, brochure, or PDF contract your partner sent to you by email. Obviously, a scanner is not enough to make this information available for editing, say in Microsoft Word. All a scanner can do is create an image or a snapshot of the document that is nothing more than a collection of black and white or colour dots, known as a raster image. In order to extract and repurpose data from scanned documents, camera images or image-only PDFs, you need an OCR software that would single out letters on the image, put them into words and then - words into sentences, thus enabling you to access and edit the content of the original document.


Combining various specific software solutions into our workflow we can fine tune and provide excellent OCR results in hundreds of languages. OCR can be used to generate searchable PDF documents, conversion to Microsoft Word Documents or for text file outputs of unformatted text. OCR also enables a document to be read aloud in PDF format for visually impaired users.
