Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a visual recognition process that turns printed or written text into an electronic character-based file. A document that is scanned and converted into a PDF document provides the basis for which OCR software may interpret each character image on the PDF and assign it an electronic character-based file that can then be entered into an editable format, such as a Text or Word document.
Given the proliferation of scan-to-PDF technology available today, Investintech's OCR solutions focus only on the conversion of already created scanned PDF documents. The quality of the OCR conversion process will largely depend on the quality of the scanned image and the clarity of the characters of that image.
The OCR technology that drives Investintech's OCR-enabled products is licensed from Nuance, Inc., a global leader in OCR-based technologies.
