OCR recognition


Recommended Posts

Depends on what you have to work with.


Last time I did this, a few decades ago, with great results was a page scanner with built in OCR, must be better these days. (probably cheaper as well)


Adobe Acrobat Pro has an OCR, IIRC my old one did a pretty good job.


There is FreeOCR, I haven't tried it, though.


More recently, had a coworker do some online, but forgot the name, we tried several, most did okay.


Another option is to use a scanning service if available.

If you need something for 1-page text and other screen text (images or tables for example) you can look at text grab.
In alternative, powetToys has a lot of goodies for windows, which also included a powerful text extractor based on the above suggestion.


Edit: Probably the online tool the other guy mentioned is contained here: https://www.online-convert.com/
