PDF, as such, does not have a âbuilt inâ OCR. The ability to OCR will be found in other software - such as Abbyy Fine Reader, which we use, daily. PDF is just a document format to hold the finished document in a way which will be read in the same way that it was saved. It used to be just for work going to the printers - so you knew that the final print would be the same as the proof. These days it has taken over from fax as probably being THE way to transmit printed and signed documents.

Included within the video is a slide with an OCR application, and a slide with a picture containing an OCR application. The picture contains an array of shapes. If the OCR application matches the shapes, it will match the content contained within the image. The OCR application in the first picture has been configured to read files containing only punctuation. When it matches these shapes, the content within the image will automatically include punctuation as the text (as indicated by the circles). The OCR application in the current picture has been installed on top of that with the knowledge that it will read only files containing punctuation. If OCR is used on the picture with an embedded OCR, and you want it to ignore any lines with only a punctuation symbol in them, you will need to edit the image. A text editor is a good idea. Here is.
