Transform PDFs and other scanned documents or image files into documents that can be edited or searched for particular keywords.
Protected PDF documents are an excellent way to disseminate data, but it makes it quite difficult to extract essential details, such as contact information.
Cisdem OCRWizard employs an optical character recognition engine to help you convert these files and make the text searchable and editable.
OCR software that works with PDFs and image files
Right off the bat, you need to import in the Cisdem OCRWizard main window the documents you want to process. The app is able to work with PDFs and various image file formats, such as BMP, PNG, TIFF, JPG, or GIF.
Worth mentioning is that Cisdem OCRWizard can process scanned documents, but keep in mind that it will not recognize text from handwritten notes. You will be able to preview the source files in the app’s main window and review the area that Cisdem OCRWizard identifies as holding text content.
Cisdem OCRWizard comes with two content recognition modes (Document or Business) and uses different color codes depending on the content type (green for text, red for images, and purple for tables).
Correct scanned images before exporting to various formats
If you are dealing with business cards, Cisdem OCRWizard will detect the different fields and export the info to the vCard or CSV format to be easily imported into your Contacts application.
However, when dealing with documents, Cisdem OCRWizard allows the user to make further adjustments on the spot. The app integrates tools for dealing with image distortions, allows you to add or remove regions, or merely adjust their size.
The final result can be easily exported to various file formats, such as PDF, DOCX, HTML, JPG, BMP, TIFF, and so on. Make sure to visit the developer’s website to get an exhaustive list of supported file formats and languages.
Rely on OCR capabilities to make protected PDFs or scanned documents editable
Bottom line, Cisdem OCRWizard can save you a lot of time by quickly extracting text content, images, and tables from various sources, including scanned files.
The Cisdem OCRWizard app includes tools for correcting any errors as far as the recognition goes, so you have full control over the OCR process, and also helps you fix distorted images.
