Scan to OCR software

We provide the option of having OCR applied to your microfiche and microfilm converted digital data.

Once we have scanned your microfiche, microfilm or aperture cards, we can apply OCR software to your digitally converted images. The advantages of OCR are that it recognises typed text within the image and makes it fully searchable and editable within its new digital format. So, we can convert your microfiche and microfilm to searchable PDF, which is beneficial if your looking to create a digital archive system.

After the completion of the scanning we also index all of your digital files by your required fields to make them easy to find in a newly digital and organised system.
