The need for editable documents
Scanned documents have introduced a great convenience into the professional world, but their benefits are limited if they are processed only as images. It is far preferable to have documents that are fully text-searchable and editable, so that users can work with them as they would with other text files. This allows for the information within them to be reproduced, and for their contents to be edited with maximum simplicity.
How to make scanned documents searchable and editable
In order to make scanned documents searchable and editable, you need to use OCR (optical character recognition) software. OCR is extremely convenient because it automates a process that would otherwise be tedious and time-consuming, requiring meticulous attention to detail. OCR software recognizes the text in any scanned document, eliminating the need for retyping information or searching for specific words by hand.
