Question: I have to work with and scan a lot of documents but they all end up as image files. When I convert them to PDFs, they’re still only images. I need to be able to search through them without losing time. Is there OCR available for image PDF?
Answer: Yes, there is OCR available for image PDF. OCR, or optical character recognition works by taking the image file and converting it to a machine encoded text file, which makes it text editable and searchable. After you OCR image PDF you can quickly search through or modify the file as needed. One of the best OCR software available is the Maestro Recognition Server from CVISION Technologies. It has accuracy rates above 99% and can process up to 20 pages per second.
