Pen and paper may be old-school, but it’s not gone entirely. Whether you prefer taking notes by hand or work with forms that are filled out manually, there are moments when you find yourself needing to transfer that information to digital form.
Typing up handwritten data of any kind is a tedious way to digitize. That’s where Optical Character Recognition saves the day.
What is Optical Character Recognition (OCR)?
OCR technology stands for Optical Character Recognition. It’s a popular software to recognize text inside images, such as scanned documents and photos. OCR is used to convert virtually any kind of images containing written text (typed, handwritten, or printed) into machine-readable data.
Digitizing your documents with OCR allows you to perform a search for keywords within the text. Lumin PDF offers OCF as one of many useful features for PDF work.
How does OCR work?
OCR converts a scanned or handwritten page into a machine-readable version. In terms of PDF, it means that you can scan documents, upload it to Lumin and make necessary edits for your preference. OCR technology saves time; also, if you lose an initial version of the file due to a crash and have a paper copy with you, you will just need to scan it, no more retyping from this moment. Once you’ve scanned your document, you will be able to make changes directly in the file itself and quickly search parts of the documents that you need.
