OCR, Optical Character Recognition Conversion/Services

OCR Services, optical character recognition services

OCR, Optical Character Recognition, this service converts scanned text into real text that can be viewed and edited in applications such a MS Word. So for example, you can send us a manuscript on paper and we will return Word document to you.

OCR is also used within PDF files, often PDf files that have been scanned using our document scanning service. These are called searchable PDF files. The user views the information as a raster image (a scanned document image) but behind this raster/scan layer is the real, searchable text or OCR layer. This text can be searched or copy and pasted into applications such as Word.

OCR is not a 100% science, it is likely that our software will miss read some characters. G and 6 is a typical error. Also, if there are blemishes to the original document, a tea cup stain for example, damages the integrity of the document, therefore the scanned document, and therefore the OCR software may miss read the data.
