Nuance OmniPage Pro
|Optical character recognition is the process of extracting text from an
image. This image can result from scanning a paper document or
opening an electronic image file. Images do not have editable text
characters; they have many tiny dots (pixels) that together form character
shapes. These present a picture of the text on a page.
|During OCR, OmniPage Pro analyzes the character shapes in an image
and defines solutions to produce editable text. After OCR, you can save
the resulting text to a variety of word-processing, desktop publishing or
OmniPage Pro’s OCR capabilities
In addition to text recognition, OmniPage Pro can retain the following
elements of a document through the OCR process.
The graphics, text and page formatting elements that OmniPage Pro
retains are determined by the settings you select. Refer to the Settings
Guidelines in the online Help for more information about selecting
Photos, logos, and drawings are examples of graphics.
