Reducing scanned text file size
When you scan a text file, the resulting file may be too large for optimal efficiency. Scanned files are stored as images that contain excessive information, which inflates the file size without providing any important improvements in quality. For this reason, you might want to use file compression software to reduce the size of your scanned text files.
Making scanned text files searchable
You can also make scanned files searchable to improve your efficiency in using them. Scanned documents may contain hundreds of pages of text, and manually searching for the passage that you need is generally not the best solution. You can use OCR software to recognize the text in the file, so that you can search with ease.
