What is zone OCR?
Zone OCR is software specifically designed to recognize text in specified data fields. This is especially useful in the processing of forms, which contain separated zones for text, which can be entered independently and sorted. Zone OCR relies on a well-designed form that is easy for the computer to read and classify.
How can zone OCR be used for PDF files?
Zone OCR can be used to recognize text in scanned PDF files. Many users scan forms that they wish to process electronically, and then convert them into PDF format for more convenient storage and transfer. Zone OCR can automatically process those PDF files, leaving users with text-searchable PDF files from which the necessary content can be extracted.
