What is OCR?
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a technology that enables conversion of images, received from scanner or digital camera, and PDFs to editable and searchable text documents ready for editing, quoting, search, and archiving.
Digital Camera OCR
Use your digital camera or mobile phone as a portable “scanner” to capture text from hardcopy documents, books, newspapers, as well as from banners, posters and other media. Then, with ABBYY FineReader, you can convert your camera images into electronic text files for editing, archiving, creating new documents and other purposes.
