    The Top 5 Benefits of OCR

    Ditch that paper! With the digitization of paper-based records, not only have we been able to save a ton of trees, but we’ve also been able to increase efficiency in a big way. Digital records are now transferable, sortable, searchable, and more easily archived. However, with a lot of benefits to digitization also come some challenges. Luckily, these challenges can be overcome with a handy tool called OCR. As you might be aware, OCR refers to Optical Character Recognition. This is a technology used to recognize text within digital or scanned documents and photos. You can use this tool to convert virtually any type of image that includes text into an editable text document, even if the text is in handwriting. PDFelement, among many other programs, supports this tool. It’s probably obvious that this technology brings many benefits. Read on to discover the top 5 below: 1. Easy Editing Ever wanted to make changes to an old document you worked on but only have the hard copy available? Maybe you want to copy the formatting of an old form you filled out or created, but again don’t have a digital copy to work off of. The OCR tool is a lifesaver because you can use it to scan and digitize old documents so that you can easily edit them in a word processor or other type of suitable program, rather than having to type the all of the content outagain by hand. This saves a ton of time and manuallabor, and is obviously a major benefit. 2.Stress-free searching After you use OCR to detect the text in your scanned document, you can save your file in a format such as .doc,.txt, .pdf and more. You can view and edit these file types in programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, PDFelement, and more. All of these programs contain an internal searching function that lets you easily search for a certain word or phrase by simply pressing Ctrl+F in Windows or Command+F in Mac. Again, this saves so much time, since you don’t have to manually scroll through the entire document and scan every line to find the section you’re looking for, which can betime consuming if it’s a lengthy document. 3.Convenient Storage Options Get rid of those filings cabinets! When you digitize documents, you save physical storage space which frees up space in the office for more productive uses, like fitting in more desks and employees, or creating leisure spaces for open seating areas, foosball tables, TVs, you name it! You also reduce the need forpaper, and paper storage. 4.Accessibility for Everyone Once you scan and convert your document using OCR, you can make it available to many other users. Essentially, it will be available to anyone who has access to the database you’ve uploaded it to. This can be beneficial since it allows you to give customers access to these digitalfiles, so that they can easily view and review past records such as past payment receipts, purchase history, credit history, etc. and more. Plus, by uploading them to databases like Archive.org you can make these files publicly accessible by anyone around the globe. 5.Top-notch translation tools These days, OCR supports a huge number of languages. English, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Indian, you name it. You scan a document in one language, digitized it, and translate it into almost any other language. This also saves time and resources, since you no longer need human translators to manually go through printed documents. This also helps your office productivity, since the turnaround time for projects is muchquicker when you don’t have to wait on translators to get your translated content back to you. Do you have any other benefits to OCR that you think should be mentioned? Let us know in the comments below!

    OCR & Registration

    When running PDFElement 6 Pro on my desktop PC, OCR doesn't work at all. The scanned document is recognized as needing OCR, and when I click "Perform OCR" it processes through to completion, but the new document that opens is not editable at all. I also tried recognition only and am not able to search on the file either. I tried downloading the OCR plugins (pdfelement6-ocrv12.exe), but still did not have success. I tried installing on my laptop, and when I first tried to Perform OCR, it said I didn't have the files to do so. I installed the same pdfelement6-ocrv12.exe plugin, and OCR worked just fine on my laptop. I uninstalled PDFElement 6 Pro completely from my desktop, rebooted, and reinstalled the same way I did on my laptop, but OCR still comes back with an uneditable page. Is there now a hidden registry setting on my PC that I am needing to purge? Files I was testing with are attached. Also, because I was trying on a second device, the registration is now broken on my desktop. What do I need to do to clear the registrations so that I can reactivate my desktop? Thank you. doc04358220181026122850.pdf doc04358320181026122856.pdf

    OCR Download

    I just purchased PDF Element 6 PRO with the intent of annotizing scanned documents and when it prompts me to press the button to download the OCR Component, I get an error that "There was a problem connecting to the server"... I've been trying to do this for the last eight hours and continue to get the same error message. Is there some other way to get the OCR File and manually install it??? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  7. As part of our Back to School promotion running until September 14th, we are highlighting the ways that PDF software can be useful when it comes to education. This time, we’ll outline the top 5 uses of PDF tools for instructors! With the beginning of the school year comes many challenges for instructors. They return back to long days of teaching, lesson planning, and marking assignments. Their days are packed, so any tool that will help make their lives just a little bit easier is one they should likely invest in. An instructor’s main concern should be on educating their students – helping them understand concepts, explaining and listening to different viewpoints, and giving students all the tools they need to absorb information so they can use it in the future. They don’t want to think about the mundane aspects of their job like how to best markup student papers, share learning material, or fill out a tedious form. This is why a PDF solution like PDFelement can be a real time-saver for instructors now that the school year is starting back up again! Here are the top five ways PDF editing tools can make your life easier as an instructor: 1. You can mark assignments electronically Since everything is done online these days, it makes sense that marking assignments is often done electronically rather than in hard copy as well. Luckily, tools like PDFelement have an abundance of annotation tools. With PDFelement, you can leave comments or sticky notes to draw attention to a certain point or concept, or you can highlight certain sections that you’d like a student to change or review. Not only will you be able to easily make these changes, but you can also easily send the marked up file back to the student who can read and review the changes using PDFelement as well. 2. You can share learning material effortlessly As well, many learning materials are now provided to students in electronic format – either through files or links to educational websites. With PDFelement’s editing features, you can easily put together reading packages for your class, using tools to manage, organize, split pages, add bookmarks, and more. If you do decide that you want to print out the reading materials for your students, you can also easily print to PDF using PDFelement. As well, PDFelement’s OCR features lets you easily scan material from a hard copy textbook that can then be edited and added into the reading package or shared electronically with your students. Most PDF editors allow you to compress and reduce large pdf files as well, so they can be easily shared without compromising quality. This can come in handy when you want to send material to students via email or other platforms online. 3. You can quickly convert files PDFelement lets you export PDFs into other editable formats like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, HTML, and more, while preserving all formatting from the original document. Perhaps you have material in PDF format that you want to present to your class. You can easily export your PDF into a PowerPoint presentation. You can also convert other file formats to PDF effortlessly, while retaining the same formatting and look as the original. Perhaps you require your students to send their papers in PDF format to ensure that no formatting gets misaligned in the process of sending. Students can easily convert their paper written in Word to PDF format with PDFelement, which will help make your life a lot easier when you are reviewing and marking the paper. 4. You can read up on material for lectures Most PDF editing tools come with relevant layouts and settings that offer you advanced reading experience with smooth scrolling and fast search. If you are researching concepts online to include in your next lecture, or if you need to view online PDF content, you can do so easily with tools like PDFelement. You can also markup the text as you go, making notes on what you want to include in your lesson plan, or highlighting certain sections. 5. You can share and fill out forms easily With PDFelement, you can create or edit PDF forms either from scratch or from a template using automatic form field recognition. This is really helpful if you need to create a form for your students to fill out. Perhaps you want to gather feedback about the class by having students fill out a form. Or you might require your students to complete monthly assessments on their work by filling out forms, either online or in hard copy. You can easily create these types of forms, and your students can easily fill them out using PDFelement. Plus, with digital signatures, you or your students can electronically sign forms for saved time and convenience. We hope this school year will be a little easier with the help of PDFelement! If you have any other tips for instructors, let us know in the comments below!

    page cropped after OCR

    Hi All, My name is Zulfan and i have used this tool since 2017. However, i now have some issue with OCR feature in this software, especially for table in landscape scanned PDF format (scanned by other apps in windows). Suddenly the page margin changed after OCR process, so the left margin was increase and the right margin was decreased, cause the table were not fully shown after OCR as they slide to the right, so some part of the rightmost column of the table were "cut" / out of page. Anyone else has this problem and understand how to fix this issue? MacBook Retina Early 2015 macOs High Sierra (version 10.13.6) Wondershare PDFelement 6 Pro -Version 6.7.1.3355(20180716)
  9. Hi, I need to reframe and deal with OCR technology several documents. All is well, but I have two documents that I can not handle because of this error (see the attached image : It says "the OCR process must be canceled due to an unexpected error") They are the same format (PDF), smaller than others I have been able to process and have worked (10MB). I already restarted application and computer, without success. Can you help me understand why this error appears? Thanks !
