Optical Character Recognition and Its Working

OCR, an acronym for Optical Character Recognition is an advanced technology used to convert graphical and scanned text into plain editable text. This technology works wonders for you when it comes to scanning printed text document pages. Often we have to deal with situations when we have to make use of the text on hard copy printed pages of a document in computers. In many cases we don’t necessarily have the electronic version or soft copy of that document. In such situations we generally have to type the whole document in a word processing file on computer which is very time consuming and exhausting. Another way is to scan the printed pages into PDF files on computer, but what if we have to edit the text in the scanned document? Scanning works only in situations where we don’t need to alter the contents of the document, which is rare indeed.

So we certainly need to have a way to make the optical text on the scanned documents editable. PDF OCR for Mac in the PDF converter pro for Mac provides us with the ability to edit graphical texts in scanned documents. http://www.iskysoft.com/convert-pdf/pdf-ocr-on-mac.html is a place to know more about PDF OCR. Editing scanned documents is the need of people related to almost every field ranging from education to commercial business and banking to governmental departments. It saves users the time and energy of retyping and reformatting printed documents’ text.
