Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
Optical character recognition, commonly known as OCR, refers to a type of software that allows you to scan documents and convert them into digital files. By scanning files into a digital format, you can better organize them, store them securely and permanently, and make them accessible to employees working from any location. OCR is ideal for the following formats:
- Text files
- Much more
OCR is a good document management solution to organize essential information related to your business and customers. As most offices move away from paper files, OCR can help them get there.
As the name implies, a Searchable PDF is a PDF that has been scanned using OCR or created by some other means. The content of the PDF, or characters, are read during text recognition of the document then added to the document as a text layer. This enables search functionality within the PDF, which is traditionally not searchable due to the format. For a user, the difference between a searchable PDF and normal PDF is visually almost indistinguishable. Searchable PDFs are hugely beneficial, as they allow you to go back and easily locate information from within important documents - without spending a lot of time reading through it.
OCR has a long list of impressive capabilities, but a few really stand out.
