OCR Optical Character Recognition/Searchable PDF Files

Searchable text/OCR text is becoming more and more popular when scanning documents. Once a document is scanned, the text that is on the scan can be automatically recognised and stored so that the data can be searched at a later date. The best example of this is the use of PDF searchable files.

Using the standard Acrobat Reader, an entire archive of searchable PDF files can be searched. 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 is 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 searchable PDF files can also have an Acrobat Catalogue built, this makes search large volumes of searchable 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
