PDFs which are created from scanned documents are usually not search-able. Our service allows you to extract editable text from such PDFs via OCR.

How to extract text from scanned images:

You have a scanned image and want to get started right away? Nothing is easier than that. We currently support the following input formats: .jpg, .png, .tiff, .bmp, .gif, .pdf, .djvu. These are the most common formats for scanned documents in the web. If your input is not available in one of these formats you would have to convert it first. Otherwise you can just select your file by clicking the "Browse" Button. If you want to submit more than one file you can use the "(+) Add File" feature and select as many input files as you want to process. Once you selected all documents you want use for the OCR simply click exctract text to proceed. The engine will start working immediatelly and you will be able to follow the process in real-time. Please make sure to submit your documents in horizontal orientation i.e. the normal way you would read them. Otherwise you might not obtain the desired result.
