OCR software not working well - need something GOOD!
Posted on 2010-09-16
Because of the number of legal/sensitive documents that need to be OCRed I will need something "good" that actually "works." I tried using the 30 day trial of Foxit Phantom (/w OCR package) but it didnt do a very good job.
However, this might be the issue. If it was originally made and designed with PDF, it OCRes perfectly.
BUT if its a hardcopy document, or either a hardcopy scanned into a jpg or PDF and then OCRed... it turns out horrible.
It doesnt keep the formatting, there is all kinds of huge white spaces that have to be formatted/fixed, and it doesnt keep any of the fonts or font sizes or even bolded characters.
Any genius recommend something GOOD and actually works as intended? Also if it has a 30 day trial too that would be nice (that way I can make sure it actually works!).
Thank you geniuses!
