How to use OCR
Some people avoid using OCR tools because they worry that the process might be complicated, and so they continue to work with scanned images in their basic form. This is far less convenient that working with fully searchable OCRed texts, especially because OCR software is extremely simple to use. If you have OCR software installed on your computer, or if you are using an online OCR tool, all you have to do is select the files that you need, and they are converted into text-searchable documents instantly.
When to use server-based software
Server-based software is generally found in larger offices, where several people might need to access the program at once. If you work in an office, chances are you are already familiar with server-based tools that are made available to employees. Server-based OCR software is no different. Enterprise OCR tools that are designed for large-scale use can often be accessed from a server.
Installing OCR server software
If you are ready to begin using OCR, you must first install the software that you want to use. Some tools are available for free online, but these lack the power and reliability that are needed for professional use. Maestro Recognition Server from CVISION is a leading server-based OCR tool that is available for download in a free trial version. To begin using Maestro Recognition Server, follow the instructions to download and install the program, and experience the convenience of OCR!
