OCR Software with Iranian/Persian Language Support
Shop desktop, server and OCR data capture solutions that have Iranian/Persian language recognition capabilities.
Farsi OCR converts combinations of Farsi (Arabic based) scripts into editable formats. This innovative recognition capability provides a competitive advantage that many OCR software programs do not have the capacity to support. Since ReadIRIS first developed optical character recognition to identify Persian languages characters on the PC platform. Unfortunately, Apple versions of ReadIRIS currently do not support Arabic, Hebrew, and Farsi scripts.
ABBYY FineReader Server has further advanced Farsi OCR capabilities for more modern, versatile applications.
ABBYY have incorporated Farsi OCR features into their FineReader Server and enterprise server OCR solutions. This Farsi OCR component is an optional accessory, and new users have the ability to choose their preferred version when purchasing. The helpful links below will take you directly to our Persian OCR supported programs.
All that said was true about Iranian languages using Arabic scripts. If you need to work with Cyrillic based Iranian languages (you need Tajik OCR for example), then your only choices are in ABBYY family of products like ABBYY FineReader Pro and ABBYY FineReader Corp
What is OCR?
When you scan a document that has text on it, the scanner simply takes a picture of the page and saves it as an image. Text saved in an image cannot be edited or searched, so the data it contains is useless to other software applications. In order to transform this information into an editable format that you can search, copy, and modify without retyping it manually, you need Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software.
OCR software comes in desktop applications for personal use, batch scanning and server based OCR for businesses, and enterprise data capture applications for things like invoice processing, forms processing and hand-print recognition.
