Advanced OCR Free - OCR
IntroductionThere are two types of PDF documents - those created by sending Office files, images, etc. to an Acrobat like PDF printer and those created by scanning physical paper like pages of a book, legal documents, etc. In order to edit a scanned PDF document, Optical Character Recognition software is required to electronically identify each character on a page and then convert it into a useable format. Essentially what it does is to extract text from an image - this functionality has been realized in Advanced OCR Free, a tool that can recognize text from PDFs that are generated by scanning paper documents.
Our new technology greatly increases OCR accuracy. It also has a build-in text editor which allows you to edit the OCR result text. You may also output the extracted text into Word. Using Advanced OCR Free can save you much time and money by sharing electronic documents instead of stacks of paper files.
