Optical Character Recognition Programs can Help Save Time

Have you ever been faced with the dilemma of needing to make edits to a paper document that you don’t have the digital file for?

You might think the only solution would be to type the document from scratch and make the necessary edits from there but you would be wrong.

Optical character recognition programs make it possible to convert images of words into text that can be edited in Word.

Here are three easy steps to use the optical character recognition program:

1. Scan your document with a modern scanner that can convert the image into a digital file.

2. Open up the digital file on your computer.

3. Use an optical character recognition program to convert the text then open it up in Word (or another document editing software).

If your computer didn’t come with this program then it can be purchased separately.

If your scanner doesn’t convert scans into digital files then it’s time for an upgrade.
