Make a scan, enhance it and save it. Are these all the features you know about CamScanner? If so, you have missed too many cool experiences.
Today we are going to share the feature – OCR (Optical Character Recognition).
1. What you can do with OCR feature?
What’s the quickest way to find a document?
OCR for search is an advanced way to find a document other than using tags and document names.
After sign in to CamScanner, all the texts in your scans will be auto recognized with our OCR feature in the background. If you want to find a certain doc, what you need to do is just searching any words you remember about it. After that, all the documents containing the words will be listed on screen, whether the word is in the title, doc image or notes.
– Text Extraction
What’s more, OCR can extract any texts on any kinds of documents, and export to .txt file. Ever want to edit some texts in a paper document or a PDF file? Scan the doc into CamScanner and use OCR to do it!
In our newly released v3.5, we made the Premium feature “Edit OCR results of any doc’s single page and export to .txt file” available to paid app users. Now just pay for the one-time charge and you can enjoy this feature and the paid app for a lifetime.
2. How to extract texts?
– For paid app users:
Open one single page of any document-> Tap the Recognize button at the bottom of the page then all recognized texts will be shown in a dialog box-> Tap Share in the right corner of the box to select Copy to Pasteboard, Email or Open In.
– For Premium subscribers:
Choose one document on My Docs page-> Tap More in the lower right corner-> Select Email or Email to myself-> Select .txt file. All the texts in the document will be sent to your friends or yourself via email.
3. How to improve the OCR accuracy?
