Batch OCR for Full-Text Conversion & Searchable PDF
The primary purpose of optical character recognition is to quickly and automatically convert scanned images of machine-printed (typed) text into actual text data that you can search through and modify.
Batch OCR software allows for the conversion of multiple files at once, usually through a hot folder or watched email inbox method that converts any files added to a particular folder.
The ability to watch a hotfolder and automatically convert documents is included in the complete versions of desktop ocr products, like FineReader Corporate, OmniPage Ultimate or ReadIRIS Corporate.
While automatic processing is available in these applications, they are not designed for true server-based processing since the application has to be running on the user's desktop. OCR servers are designed for unattended batch OCR processing and high-volume applications that require multiple CPUs and processing workflows.
Those applications are all designed for traditional, full-page OCR conversions to text, Word, Excel, or searchable PDF documents.
Batch OCR for Data Capture
OCR Data Capture systems are designed to read specific data points from documents and output structured data like CSV, XML, JSON or SQL databases. SimpleIndex, FlexiCapture and PaperVision Capture all offer batch zone OCR as well as advanced features like AI-based training, invoice processing and line items.
