Scanned documents and PDFs are easy to work with. You can move them between computers. You can email them. You can edit them. Wait, maybe not editing. Editing might be a problem.
Scanning a document usually creates an image. JPEG is the standard format. That’s fine if you want to look at it. But you can’t edit it. And PDFs can’t be edited without the right (expensive) software. You need to convert these into an editable format.
OCR Terminal does just that. OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. It’s a program that can recognize text. Then it can copy the text into an editable document. It will look the same. But you’ll be able to change the text.
OCR Terminal lets you convert up to 20 pages per month. The site accepts PDF, JPEG or TIFF files. Convert them into Word compatible text files.
