Features

  Recognition accuracy & speed


Spectacular Speed and Accuracy     Improved
Readiris Pro perfectly reproduces texts, titles, capital letters, handprint, paragraphs, barcodes, columns, font types, font sizes, numbers, tables, graphics, etc. Get an editable document exactly identical to the original in record time (up to 1600 characters recognized/second) with over 99% recognition rate (on good quality documents the recognition rate goes up to 100%).

Learning Fonts
If Readiris is unsure about a reading result, the doubtful character (or character string) is displayed with its parent word and the proposed solution is presented for you to agree with or correct the proposed solution. Readiris saves the solution in the dictionary so that future recognition will no longer require your intervention.

Page Deskewing
The command "Deskew Page" straightens pages which were scanned at an angle for optimized OCR recognition accuracy

  Unique handprinted text recognition    NEW

Recognize handprinted text your wrote!
Equipped with the I.R.I.S. ICR (Intelligent Character Recognition) engine, Readiris Pro reads hand printed capital letters, figures or symbols. Scan documents containing formatted manual notes and they will be promptly recognized. Based on more than one million writing samples Readiris supports all natural writing styles - American and European.

What is handprinting and what is handwriting?
With handprinting, the "block letters" are separated and the recognition
software has an easier job to isolate the individual characters.

Handwriting is used to describe continuous, "cursive" handwritten text, the symbols within a word or character string touch, it is impossible to say where one symbol ends and another starts.

  Document layout

Intelligent Page Analysis & Powerful Autoformat(tm) Technology
Improved
Readiris Pro automatically identifies the texts, tables and graphics on the scanned document and perfectly reproduces them in the output file. It's even possible to choose your preferred paper format (A4, Letter, etc.).

Text formatting
When processing a document you can select how you want the recognition result to show in your new document:
- "Create Body Text": you get a continuous, running text. All formatting, if any, is done afterwards by the user.
- "Retain Word and Paragraph": the font type (serif - sans serif, proportional - fixed, normal - condensed), size and typestyle (bold - italic - underlined - superscript - subscript) are maintained across the recognition, tabs and the alignment of each block are recreated and tables are recaptured correctly.
- "Recreate Source Document" recreates a facsimile copy of the original document with text blocks, tables, graphics, bulleted and number lists recreated in the same place and the word and paragraph formatting maintained across the recognition. You get a true copy of your source document, be it a compact and editable text file, no longer a scanned image of your document.

Table recognition
Readiris outputs tabular data to spreadsheets and word processors: tables get reconstructed cell by cell in worksheets and inserted as table objects in word processor files.

A very easy editing tool
Enable the option "Use Columns instead of Frames" to facilitate the recognized text editing. Words flow from one column to the next: modifying the text becomes very easy.

  Extensive PDF support and creation

Convert PDF files to editable documents
- Convert PDF to text: you can open image-based PDF documents, execute the recognition and save the OCR result to an editable text document (in any supported text format).
- Convert image PDF to text PDF: you can execute the recognition on image-based PDF files and save the OCR results... as text-based PDF documents! (Text-based PDF files are searchable and editable,
"image-only" PDF files are not.)
- "Unlock" PDF content: you can convert "read-only" PDF documents, where the text is normally inaccessible to documents where the text can be accessed freely!

Create PDF files     Improved
Generate PDF files with text placed over the image and you'll obtain the perfect archiving format with a nice on screen legibility and an optimized file size.
