What is OCR software?
As digital archives replace hard copies of documents, it becomes important for documents to become available in electronic form. This transition is impossible without the use of OCR software, which transforms scanned images into text-searchable files. OCR stands for optical character recognition. This software is able to recognize text content in a scanned image, making the text available for digital editing.

If you use Microsoft SharePoint as your web application platform, then it is important for your OCR software to be compatible with it.
