What is OCR?
OCR software is an optical text recognition tool that does not rely on a computer's pre-existing ability to recognize the text in a document. OCR actually uses the shapes of the characters to identify individual letters and numbers, providing a very flexible tool. OCR software can make the text within an image file searchable and editable, so that the user can work with its contents.
Benefits of an OCR server
OCR is increasingly becoming a widespread tool in offices, where large numbers of documents need to be processed quickly. In addition, as offices make the switch from paper document storage to electronic document management, many documents need to be scanned and saved in a digital format. Server-based OCR software is ideal because many users can access it independently, making it ideal for large-scale office use.
Choosing an OCR server for your office
When choosing an OCR server for your office, consider the features that are most important to you. Server-based OCR software should be fast, in order to ensure that it is maximally efficient, but you should not have to sacrifice accuracy.
