OCR software guide

The technical possibilities of using a PC or notebook are more diverse today than ever before. From the simple production of new Office documents to the elaborate editing of images and videos, almost everything is possible. But while the most important functions are of course integrated directly in the operating system, some features can also be used well in retrospect with additional software. One software that does exactly that on any computer is the so-called OCR software. But what kind of software is it and which function does it fulfill? In which area can the software be used and what are the possible differences between different products? All these questions will be answered below.

What is OCR software anyway?
The name OCR Software comes from the English and is an abbreviation for „optical character recognition“. Convinced in the German language this simply means text recognition. Of course, the term comes from information technology and describes a software that allows the user to recognize fonts and text from image files. In the German language the OCR software is also known under the name „optical character recognition“.

Why is the use of OCR software useful?
Basically, the software is able to recognize font from any image file and thus allow editing. This is especially useful for scanned files. Because even if a previously printed, normal Office document is scanned, this can only be saved as an image file on the computer. A further processing of the text in the usual form is of course not possible with such a file. However, the OCR software is not only able to recognize fonts and texts in scanned documents. Thanks to modern technology, this also works with recorded pictures, for example from the camera or, of course, from the Smartphone,

The software was initially able to recognize only special fonts, this has changed significantly today thanks to powerful hardware and the fast-moving technology. In general, a good recognizes OCR software Today, all common fonts and even most of the manuscripts, so even documents captured by hand can be scanned and saved without tedious typing as a Word document.

What are the differences in the various offers?
As with just about any software, there are various offers also in the OCR software. So these can be divided mainly into free usable and paid programs. As a private user, you can certainly use the free variants, since they can generally fulfill all claims of occasional use. Significantly more functions and no limits in the processing of scanned files, however, can show the paid programs that are very well suited for professional use in the company. Incidentally, there are even online services today that control text recognition. There are offers here, for example, from Google. Not even a program needs to be installed, all functions can be controlled in the browser after logging in.
