Scanned document to text?
Scanned document to text is when you take a document that you have scanned and you process it so that the computer is able to read and analyze it in a way that the text becomes searchable and editable. Normally, the text on a scanned file would not be recognized because the file would only become an image. There is not much you can do with this image which is why scanned to text is a very important task.
What is gained?
When you are able to convert your scanned images into a document in which the text can be searched as well as edited, it enables you to do a lot more with these files. For example, it opens you up to the possibility of automation of invoices. If you have employees manually processing invoices, it is a tedious job and probably a very inefficient way of doing it. That is why you implement a scanned document to text system which will enable you to automate invoice processing.
