OCR software rapidly scans digital documents character by character by analyzing the light and dark areas of the page. Each character is compared with the program's digital library of characters, a match is found, and the software writes the character to a fully editable and searchable text file. OCR can work on scanned forms, even handwritten ones, regardless of the lines on the page, and thus can quickly and efficiently digitize paperwork, eliminating the need for the mounds of paper cluttering so many offices.
