OCR Optical Character Recognition/Searchable PDF Files
Searchable text/OCR text is becoming more and more popular when choosing how to scan documents. Once a document is scanned, the text is then automatically recognised and stored so that the data can be searched at a later date. It makes no differnece if the information is alpha or numeric, provided it is text OCR will add the ability to search for vital information contained within the body of the document.
Using the standard Acrobat Reader, an entire archive of searchable PDF files can be queried within a matter of minutes. Acrobat will then provide a results list of all the recognised occurrences of the word (or number) searched for. During normal viewing, the user is presented with the original document scan, the searchable text that was recognised on the document scan is stored behind the scan layer.
The recognised text can also be copied out and pasted into an application such as MS Word where it can be edited as a normal Word document. This forms part of our document scanning service and is a highly cost effective way of creating a very effective solution.
The PDF files can also have an Acrobat Catalogue built, this makes searching large volumes of text files much faster by combining the search data into a database.
We also offer OCR/Optical Character Recognition Services, where we scan the original document and return the file as both a Word document and also a searchable PDF
