1.4. Text Recognition (OCR)

Text Recognition allows extracting the words from scans and creating PDFs with text.

For OCR our app uses iTunes On-demand Resources library.

To use text recognition for scanned documents, do the following: 

  1. Open a document and tap three dots in the upper right corner
  2. Choose Recognize Text (OCR)
  3. Wait until the processing is over and choose Show as Text

Automatic Text Recognition (OCR) is disabled by default in Scanner Pro. To enable this functionality, please follow a few simple steps:   

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Scroll to Text Recognition (OCR)
  3. Enable Automatic Text Recognition and choose languages

Next time you scan a document, Text Recognition will start automatically.    

Note: the more languages you have enabled, the longer it will take to process a scanned document.
