How to OCR text
OCR is a technology that enables your computer to automatically scan through a document, identify characters that make up text, and convert the entire document into a text-searchable format. You can OCR text by using online tools that vary in quality, or by using OCR software on your computer. You simply need to select the files that you want to OCR, and they are processed for you.
Extracting information from forms
You can extract information from forms without actually reading the responses and entering the data by hand. Instead, you can set up forms in such a way that they are readable using OCR software. Then, all you need to do is run the software, and OCR can identify responses, entering them into a customizable database.
