TextBridge eliminates tedious retyping of documents


The OCR button scans typed or printed documents and sends them to PaperPort's built-in TextBridge OCR engine, which automatically converts them into editable documents and sends them to your word processor. With OneTouch and TextBridge OCR, you'll never again have to retype a text document.
You can use TextBridge to scan and convert printed pages to text documents for your word processor, spreadsheet program, web browser, database program, or other text application. Pages may be from most sources, including computer printers, fax machines, photocopiers, magazines, and newspapers. Pages can be black and white or color. TextBridge can also recognize standard page image files from fax modems, image applications, and other sources.
In most cases, TextBridge understands your original documentís format and maintains the layout, including columns, headers, footers, pictures, and picture captions. Pictures can be black and white, grayscale, or color.
Recomposition is possible only if your text program supports pictures and layout. For example, recomposition is supported in Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect but not in Notepad. Forms and documents created in desktop publishing programs are usually too complex for recomposition by TextBridge as well as your word processor. As a result, the text and pictures are retained but the full layout is not.
