Benefits of searchable PDFs
Searchable PDF files can transform the way you work. With the availability of searchable PDFs, you can work with the text in any of your files, copying, pasting, and editing information as needed. Unfortunately, scanned documents are not editable immediately. In order to be able to search the text and work with the file, you need to convert it into a text-searchable format.
How to create searchable PDFs
In order to create searchable PDFs from non-searchable files, you need to use OCR software. OCR, or optical character recognition, automatically recognizes text characters and enables you to work with the content of your document. All you need to do is install OCR software on your computer and select the files that you would like to OCR. The software will take care of the rest automatically.
Batch software to create searchable PDFs
The benefit of batch OCR software is that you can process large volumes of documents quickly, making large amounts of text available to you right away. CVISION has developed Maestro Recognition Server, an OCR tool with batch processing capabilities. Maestro is ideal for creating searchable PDF files, delivering high quality results.
