Scanning and Text Recognition
Convert paper-based documents and scanned images into editable text!
Optical character recognition (OCR) is the process by which the computer takes a scanned image of a page of printed text (either from a typewriter, printer, or other such mechanical forms of printing), and translate the page from a graphic format to one of plain text.
SKY Binary Art provides specialized scanning and character recognition services. We can convert any paper document into an electronic file for archival or Web use. We also can scan and convert complex graphics and photographs. We can save these documents and images in a variety of graphic and word processing formats. We can generate complex documentation that can be edited and re-used. We can prepare graphics for use on the internet or intranet publishing. We can also convert documents and graphics file formats and platforms.
The scanning process is as follows: Documents are scanned and converted into graphics files. Then, these files are processed by OCR software to convert the graphics images into text or text with graphics, which greatly reduces the size of the files and allows the text to be edited and/or indexed by search engines, thus allowing these documents to be posted on the internet.
