Automatically recognizing scanned text
In order to enable your computer to automatically recognize scanned text, you need special text recognition software. Normally, computers just process scanned documents as images, so the individual text characters are not recognized. However, with the help of special software, you can convert an ordinary scanned document into a completely text-searchable file.
Benefits of text recognition
There are many benefits of text recognition. Text recognition solutions can increase the efficiency of your work by enabling you to find and copy scanned text, instead of reading and retyping long documents manually. Most importantly, text recognition is highly accurate, so you do not have to worry about typos.
