What is PDF OCR?
In general, OCR is a type of software that is designed to optically recognize text within image documents. Because computers cannot automatically recognize text unless the text is computer-generated, many scanned documents and other image files containing text are not actually searchable. OCR software resolves this problem. PDF OCR is a subcategory or OCR specifically for dealing with PDF files.
What is batch OCR?
Batch OCR is for dealing with large numbers of files by processing them in groups. Batch OCR is a preferred solution for many users because it is more efficient than regular OCR, which goes through documents one at a time. Some free OCR solutions are available online, but these are often less powerful and generally do not contain batch processing capabilities. As a result, industrial-power software is often required.
