OCR software is a class of computer programs applying
OCR. A typical example of OCR software like OmniPage offers
features for scanning or importing image files,
conducting an automatic layout analysis and recognizing the contents of
documents by using high-performance OCR algorithms. The so converted documents can be saved in many different formats like
DOC, HTML, PDF or TXT for further processing.
For reading forms or questionnaires with a fixed structure there is specialized OCR software like our FormPro. A special form of OCR software are developer tools like the OmniPage Capture SDK enabling software developers to simply integrate OCR into their own applications.
