OCR stands for optical character recognition and explains the process where we translate/extract text(characters) from a scanned file/image. By doing so, we can even recognize text and extract printed or typed handwritten content from physical files into an edible digital document.
AlgoDocs is an example of a high-quality and automatic data extraction platform. Its developed algorithms rely on image processing and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technologies with a human vision attitude. Therefore, AlgoDocs has reliable and accurate data extraction with high accuracy results. Text extraction from PDF documents is performed likewise using artificial intelligence and self-learning algorithms.

For scans & more
Forget about copying text from an article by hand or scanned book. Manual data entry takes more time and has higher costs. Auto-extracting data would stop you from spending extra time doing manual data entry and help achieve the goal significantly faster. Also, manual data entry results in errors due to missing/incorrect information, incomplete records, and duplicates. AlgoDocs successfully eliminates annoying and error-prone manual data entry and offers fast, secure, and accurate document data extraction.
