New open-source product will change data-entry forever

Last Updated on: 21st November 2023, 08:14 pm

We are living in a world where common problems are being faced head-on and solutions are being found and shared with the world every day.

One such solution comes in the form of an open-source product which enables text recognition of scanned documents and converts them into editable formats.

This product is called the iText pdfOCR.

It has been developed by iText Group NV, a group that continues to innovate with its PDF software solutions.

The product engages in Optical Character Recognition, a function that converts scanned documents into searchable PDF formats. It is expected to be a game changer for administrative tasks, as it provides the possibility of cataloguing scanned documents to be searched, indexed and even interpreted.

Multilingual document recreation with the iText pdfOCR will be a possibility thanks to it working alongside Tesseract OCR engine technology – a tool which supports over 100 languages.

Yeonsu Kim, CEO at iText Group NV, discussed its potential, stating:“With COVID-19 urging companies to accelerate their digital transformation projects, organizations are forced to explore new ways of accessing and managing their data – existing and new.”

The CEO added: “Being a leader in the digital documents space, we’re pleased to be at the forefront of this new era.

“As such, I am very proud to announce the latest addition to our PDF library for today’s new world: thanks to the OCR capabilities of iText pdfOCR many new opportunities will open up for users and enterprises that want to maximize their data potential.”
