OCR is an acronym for Optical Character Recognition. The OCR engine software attempts to read each and every letter/number/word on an image, and write it out to various file formats. The results of OCR depend on multiple aspects of the image quality. Paper quality, print type, font style, and print quality of the original document can affect image quality and thus the results of OCR. One of the most widely used file formats on the market today is Adobe PDFs.
The OCR Module has the ability to rapidly convert and output scanned images as PDF files, with the OCR as hidden text in each PDF. The results of the full text OCR module can be editable or non-editable files in a file format and directory of the user’s choice. The OCR result files are stored in the batch folder for future reference.
