What is text recognition?
Text recognition software automatically recognizes text in an image file. Also known as optical character recognition, this type of software makes it easier to search through the content of image files that contain text. Text recognition software uses advanced algorithms based on the shapes of letters to recognize different characters. In addition to printed text, intelligent character recognition can recognize handwritten text.
Applying text recognition to scanned documents
Text recognition software is particularly useful for scanned documents, because they are frequently lengthy documents containing a great deal of text, in which manual searches are extremely inconvenient. Text recognition software instantly converts the entire file into a text-searchable format, so that you can use it like any other text file.
