Online OCR is a free online service that can perform OCR on PDFs and images. Input formats. PDF JPG BMP TIFF GIF Output formats. Word Excel plain text Note that it doesnât support files that are larger than 15 MB. If you are after high accuracy, Iâd like to recommend PDF Converter OCR. I have been using it on my Mac for years. The app does an excellent job of OCRing and converting PDFs and images. It provides ultra high accuracy. It supports a variety of input and output formats.
OCR in PDF and JPEG files is performed automatically by software. This should only be used on documents that use all possible characters (US, UK, German, etc.). PDF and JPEG files with non-printable characters are automatically converted to text. All of these are automatically converted. Converter OCR will also convert text to a PDF file that can be uploaded onto your server or other applications such as Word and Excel. It requires that your documents have characters that will not be converted into non-printable character. It works well with PDF files that contain only text, numbers and punctuation. It cannot convert PDF files that contain images. Converter OCR provides an optional scan button for PDF files. By ticking this box, your PDF document will be scanned automatically. If you do not tick this box, your document will remain in full color. I have personally used this feature to scan.
