What is scan character recognition?
Character recognition software, also known as OCR or optical character recognition, is a special type of software designed to make it easier to work with scanned documents. Recognition software is able to take any scanned document containing text and make the text fully searchable and editable, so that you can work with scanned files just as you would with any other text file.
Benefits of character recognition for scanned documents
Character recognition software is especially useful in professional settings, where there is a large volume of scanned documents that need to be converted into text format. Without OCR software, this process must be performed manually, and can be an extremely long, tedious process. Character recognition software saves businesses time and money by automating the conversion.
