While we live in a digital world, the transformation isn’t fully complete. Whether you’re a small business owner, freelancer, or someone who works from home, physical documents are still prevalent. Scanning physical documents to use in digital workflows can be time-consuming, but the conversion process can be more efficient — and lead to more useful files — with OCR technology.
A stack of paperwork can be a data entry nightmare, but you can make your dream of automation-driven conversion come true with OCR technology like Adobe Acrobat.
Upload scanned documents and they will be instantly formatted and transcribed in the exact formatting of the original file. Custom font generation means you never have to worry about whether the fonts match, even if the original document was handwritten.
If you receive a file format you haven’t edited before, like JPG or TIFF, OCR technology ensures every file can be changed and adjusted. Acrobat with OCR software is perfect for archival purposes too, as cloud storage ensures you always have a copy. Smart features like searchable text and user access controls make it quick and simple to find and complete whatever machine-readable forms you need.
Not only does OCR save you time, but you also save money, effort, and the environment too. Gone are the days of bulky, expensive scanners and unorganized file cabinets. With more living areas doubling as places of business, you can streamline your work areas to get the most out of your available space.
