Optical Character Recognition
If you have a large amount of hard copy that requires converting back to editable text then look no further
We can re-type hundreds of pages every day and supply you with either plain text or formatted files that can be imported straight into any word processor or DTP program, and we’ll promise it will cost you a just fraction of what a typist would charge – and quicker too.
How can we do this?………. by using Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
OCR is the process by which a paper document is scanned and processed by software that ‘reads’ the text from the scanned image and creates a new editable file containing that text.
One of the main advantages we have is that we can scan at a rate of 240 images a minute (a figure that would take more than an hour to do on a standard scanner), and as we carry out this process every day we can safely say we are pretty good at it! Although it is a fairly simple process the difference it can make to the time and effort taken to reproduce a technical manual, for instance, is quite amazing.
All you need to do is send us the documents and leave the rest to us. Before you know it you’ll receive the documents back together with the text files in the format of your choice ready to be laid out in a word processing package.
We can handle anything, from 30 page war memoirs to 7,000 pages of nuclear power plant procedures manuals – just give us a try.
If you have a project that you think we may be able to help with do not hesitate to telephone or email us. We can look at the proposed project and give you a price.
