What is PDF OCR?
PDF OCR software is a type of technology that is able to make PDF files text-searchable. OCR, or optical character recognition, identifies text characters within PDF files, which may contain images as well as text content. PDF OCR enables users to work with the files just as they would with regular text files. This is especially important for PDF files that are created from scanned documents.
OCR from a website
You can find OCR solutions on many different websites. Online OCR solutions are convenient for one-time users, as they are free and easy to use. However, they are usually poor in quality, which makes them inefficient for long-term or professional use. You can also find websites that offer free downloads of professional OCR solutions. These are high in quality and provide advanced services.
Finding a PDF OCR website
In order to find PDF OCR on a website, all you need to do is perform a very basic internet search. To find the right tool for you, you should keep in mind the specific features that you need. CVISION offers Maestro Recognition Server, an advanced, server-based OCR solution. Maestro is available in a free trial version, which you can download even if you don't want to commit to purchasing a complete toolkit for your office.
