Image to OCR Converter updated

January 21, 2010


Soft Solutions has updated its optical character recognition (OCR) product. Image to OCR Converter can be used to recognize text in images such as scanned PDF documents.

The software reads text in BMP, PDF, TIFF, JPG, GIF, PNG and other image formats and saves the extracted text in DOC, PDF, HTML or TXT format, complete with formatting and spacing. This allows users to avoid having to re-type content by converting scanned images back into text.

The product supports more than 40 languages, and the latest version adds automatic index-recognition, along with supporting the extraction of PDF bookmarks and tables of contents. The company has also said that it will soon roll out another round of updates.

The software also provides security features such as password protection and watermark to the converted documents. Files can be also be watermarked to prevent illegal distribution. Image to OCR Converter can automatically detect and correct rotated, skewed and tilted documents. Broken text and characters can also be reconstructed to provide better accuracy and recognition.
