Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology and OCR applications can help you get text from pictures, PDF documents, scans, photos, or other types of files. OCR can be a very powerful tool for any work-intensive company or organization. After all, then you will not have to retype documents manually and quickly find the information you need in files with already recognized text. If the file you are interested in contains scanned text that needs to be edited, first this text needs to be recognized.
Instead of manually retyping text from a picture or scanned document, you can save a lot of time by downloading an application that recognizes text from a photo or scanned document. The recognized text can be copied and edited in a convenient editor. For text recognition, there are many different services, programs, and entire OCR systems that can be found on the Internet. There are many OCR based programs and online photo translators that offer to convert PDF to DOC file format right away.
