The primary purpose of Optical Character Recognition is to quickly and automatically convert scanned images of machine-printed (typed) text - which to a computer are no more meaningful a collection of pixels than any other image, such as a landscape photo - into actual text data that you can search through and modify.

Batch OCR software is a form of Optical Character Recognition software that allows for the conversion of multiple files at once, usually through a hot folder or watched folder method that converts any files added to a particular folder on your computer on a preset schedule. It also includes OCR servers, which can split the workload among more than one machine.
