Welcome to our free Online OCR Service!

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition and refers to a technology which allows you to extract editable text from scanned images or documents. If you need to digitalize a text, processing it automatically using this OCR tool can save you a lot of work and time. We also allow you to process multi-page documents in a very efficient and user friendly way. The result qualtity of course may depend on the quality of the scanned document which you have submitted. So far our our service is able to process 29 different languages. If you cannot find the language of your document feel free to drop as a messeage. We are planning to further extend our handsome OCR Service.

Btw we accept Dogecoin here :-)

Howto 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.

Howto to do OCR preserving the page layout

Many times you want to have your document searchable, however it might contain many images. Getting only the plain text and loosing the page layout would be kind of annoying. However there is a way out: You can simply produce searchable DjvU or PDF documents here. These preserve the original page layout and still contain searchable text. Like that it is possible to preserve the text formatting in principle.
