OCR (Optical Character Recognition). Computers are everywhere you look. However, paper documents haven’t simply gone away. Storing, finding and using paper documents adds unwanted extra time to work processes. Organizations frequently scan documents and then store them as PDF files.
Storing documents as PDF only solves the physical storage problem. Scanning and applying OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to your documents solves many problems associated with paper documents and has the added benefit making these documents searchable.
Solid PDF Tools allows you to create and apply a searchable text layer to your
scanned documents using OCR. This OCR layer makes them easy to index and archive so that you can quickly find what you need, when you need it.
Automatically Apply OCR. When scanning documents to PDF using Solid PDF Tools you can
automatically apply a searchable text layer. Scanners with automatic
document feeders are supported and Solid PDF Tools can handle anything
from one page to multiple pages depending on your needs.
Apply OCR to Existing Scanned PDF documents . Existing scanned PDF documents can be converted in bulk to searchable PDF/A documents.
Searching the PDF in Adobe Reader. You can use applications such as Adobe Reader to search for text in PDF documents. Other applications can index the documents, allowing you to search for text among many archived PDF documents.
