Convert your paper documents to fully editable electronic files using our OCR Solutions and Conversion
OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is the process of converting paper documents into full editable electronic files such as Microsoft Word files, Excel spreadsheets, XML, CSV, HTML, PDF searchable, databases etc. The process begins by scanning the hard-copy material (eg. books, novels, newspapers, documents, magazines, journals, directories etc.) to produce high-resolution images such as TIFF, PDF, JPEG etc., before converting the image to a machine-readable and editable format.
