Benefits of automatically extracting text
By automatically extracting text from scanned documents, you save yourself a great deal of time and work. Automatic text extraction is a fast and easy process that lets you capture the relevant information within a form or other document without manually retyping it. You can set up document automation software to run on its own, while you work on other tasks.
Working with a scanned PDF
One type of document that can benefit from document automation is a scanned PDF file. PDF files are a very convenient format for working with scanned documents because they are so universal. To extract text from a scanned PDF file, you need document automation software that uses optical character recognition to recognize text. Some document automation tools can even process scanned PDF files in batches, speeding up the process further.
