Text Contained Within a TIFF file
TIFF files are created from scanned documents, which often contain text that users want to convert into electronic format. One inconvenient limitation of scanning is that while it produces an electronic image of the text document, it does not actually create a text file that users can work with. As a result, the text contained within most TIFF files is completely inaccessible.
Converting TIFF File to Text Using OCR
Fortunately, you can resolve this problem using OCR software.OCR recognizes the text within TIFF files, by using optical recognition technology to identify text even within an image. With the help of OCR software, you can convert an entire TIFF file into text that you can work with. Once you have OCRed a file, you can search, edit, and manipulate the contents of the document in the same ways that you would a regular text file.
