OmniPage: Convert scanned documents and PDF files into editable, searchable formats!

Convert PDF contents using one-click workflows

Converting documents does not have to be complicated. By using pre-defined or your self-created workflows you can start complex routine jobs with a single mouse click. Convert images from your iPhone, iPad or digital camera into readable formats and send them to your electronical Kindle reader automatically.

Access and convert documents in the cloud

Storing, sharing, and archiving documents online in cloud storage is a fast, inexpensive, and convenient option today. OmniPage is designed to connect to a variety of cloud storage and online document websites. Now you can convert documents stored in Windows Live SkyDrive, GoogleDocs, Evernote, Dropbox, and so much more.

Automatically process emailed documents

By using pre-programmed workflows you can convert your documents from one format into another in a single step. Now you can receive scanned papers or PDFs via Microsoft Outlook. OmniPage will automatically convert them and save them in your preferred format.

OmniPage 18 Standard – One of the most favoured solutions for scanning and OCR

Don’t retype your documents — convert them! OmniPage 18 is the fastest and most precise way to convert paper, PDF files, and even digital camera pictures into documents you can edit in your favorite PC applications. OmniPage 18 delivers unrivaled accuracy, speed, and
innovative features. It supports virtually all scanners and can recognize text from images taken with a digital camera, an iPhone® or an iPad®. The program turns text from paper that would take hours retyping it into perfectly formatted PC documents within seconds. You can even have your scanned documents being sent from any device by eMail to Microsoft Outlook. OmniPage 18 is suitable for the education sector, for private use and for smaller businesses.
