Optical character recognition is generally abbreviated to OCR which is used to perform electronic, mechanical translation of the images of typewritten, handwritten or printed text into a format which is machine edible. OCR is a research field in artificial intelligence, pattern recognition and also machine vision. Optical character recognition provides a scope of academic research. Initially the recognition of digital character pattern and the recognition of optical character were considered to be distinct fields but the OCR team has broadened up and included the digital processing techniques also because true optical techniques are used in very few applications.
File compression or file reduce size technique is the process of reduction of the size of the image file for storage, processing and transmission. The file reduce size techniques may affect the quality of the image. Compression process can be classified into two types
1. Lossless compression-
This is the process by which the storage space that is required for an image file is reduced without any loss of data.
2. Lossy compression-
This process helps in reducing the storage space by discarding the redundant information.
The OCR file size usually specified during the installation itself. This size is fixed to approximately 280 MB in Oracle 11g or 10g. The file-reduce-size should be opted for as it reduces time and money. An image to PDF compressor can be used for this purpose. It is a windows application using which we can directly convert image files (JIP.TIF, PNG, GIF, BMP, PSD, WMF, PIC, EMF, PXC, PDF) to PDF files. . This program of image to PDF OCR compression is not dependable on Abode reader and Abode Acrobat applications.
What are the file reduce size PDF OCR compressor highlight features?
Compression of black and white images into PDF files using JBIG2 compression.
Compression of grayscales and colour images into PDF file with JPEG2000 compression.
Conversion of the scanned TIFF and image files to PDF files which are full text searchable.
The basic features of image to PDF:-
The Abode Acrobat program is not needed.
The images and multiple directories are combined into one PDF file.
The multi page image file is supported to PDF conversion.
