OCR (Optical Character Recognition) Scanning

OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning is the process of digitizing a hardcopy document or a uneditable digital file (such as a scanned picture of a document) into a computer file that can then be editable with a word processing program such as Microsoft® Word®.

Depending on the quality and condition of your original hardcopy document, you can typically expect to see 98% optical character recognition accuracy. This means minimum correction is required.

Once you have a digital version of your document, you can easily print and e-mail it quickly and easily. As with any digital file, you can easily store and create a backup copy your document for future revision or printing.
