OCR – Optical Character Recognition

OCR – Optical character recognition technology is able to extract text contents out of digital images, pdf files. These text contents are editable and searchable and ready for further utilization (data storage, generate new text contents, machine translation, etc.). OCR also can be used to read printed documents., if the data is available on paper based documents (passports, other ID forms or postal items, like mails, packages).

We use OCR methods by TAS Data Collector in our TAS (Text Analytics Sytem) Platform.
