Properties of scanned files
When a file comes out of a scanner, it is not always ready for you to use. While image files are fairly simple, scanned text documents can be more complex. First of all, a scanner outputs files in TIFF format, which is large and cannot be compressed very well. Second, the text within a scanned document cannot be searched or edited, so it is not very useful immediately. For this reason, additional steps must be taken with scanned documents.
Using OCR for scanned files
OCR, or optical character recognition, is a very useful tool for scanned files because it enables you to work with scanned text documents just as you would with any other text. After using an OCR program on an image file containing text, you can search through the text and edit it, quickly and easily. OCR software saves users time and money, providing an efficient solution to a very common problem.
