Editor's review

This is a development kit that helps integrate OCR functionality into applications.

Whenever there is a need for converting scanned documents to computer readable and editable document, OCR is a technology that needs to be used. This software development kit helps incorporate those functions with your application. This SDK gives your application the functionalities to convert scanned text, images and scanned PDF files into editable documents. This tool can help save money and time. Lot of boring retyping can be avoided and one can focus on the real work. The developers claim more than 99.8% accuracy. However that really depends on the font in the document, the condition of the document in terms of image quality and any distortion in the images. Thus, it is never close to 100% on an average and for large volume document the amount of editing requited could be substantial. Even at 10% failure rate in a 100,000 character document, the retyping of 10,000 characters will be required.

Document layout and formatting is retained and no time need be wasted on that count. Text and paragraph formatting, images, bullet lists, headers and columns formatting remain intact. PDF documents are supported well; you can convert both scanned PDFs into editable documents and create searchable PDF files. You can scan your paper documents directly and save them as editable files in formats like DOC or RTF. You can even save these as searchable PDFs. You would be able to import digital camera images. A built-in text editor with spell-checker is useful for editing those characters that could not be recognized. This is a very good product. If you are looking for a similar solution, you should try it in your exact workflow.
