Optical Character Recognition


FreeFileConvert now supports OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for following formats:

pdf -> txt
jpg -> txt
bmp -> txt
gif -> txt
png -> txt
tif -> txt
tiff -> txt

OCR is a technology which converts your scanned images into searchable text, so now using FreeFileConvert OCR support you can convert your scanned files into text files, which we hope will help many people. However our OCR conversion is designed to convert only typewritten text in English language, so processing documents which contain handwriting or language other than English will not produce satisfactory results.

If you find any problems doing OCR using FreeFileConvert, please let us know as this conversion is still in beta and we would like to hear from you.
