OCR for Faxes
As documents are increasingly being scanned, shared, and viewed via electronic means, communication and workflow is improved. There is no need to waste paper or risk losing documents since they can now be sent from computer to computer. Faxes are another quick and convenient way to send and share documents whether through a fax machine or a computer. However neither scanned documents nor faxes can be edited and are not text searchable because they are merely replicated images of the original copy. OCR solves this problem by converting the scanned document into text searchable format.
What OCR Does
OCR stands for optical character recognition and converts the image file that is the scanned document into a machine encoded text file. Because the file is now in text format, you can edit and search through it. Faxes are also in image format so they face the same problem. However OCR for faxes performs the exact function. Instead of going through every fax looking for specific information, you can now locate the pertinent words, numbers, or phrases within seconds using a simple search function. Faxes or scanned documents that need to be updated can be done so with ease using the copy and paste tools. OCR can greatly improve the efficiency of any office by reducing the need for unnecessary labor and maximizing time utility.
