Automatic OCR

Aug 8, 2012 1:57 AM

Is there any kind of server based software that we can run to automatically run the OCR software on documents we scan in from our printers. They are all scanned into a networked drive and as PDF documents.


We use Acrobat 6 (yup old) currently to OCR docs but only a few people have it due to the small amount of licences we own, and it takes far too much of our time to do this every time someone wants it doing.

    You might want to see if the the Action capability in Acrobat X Pro. will suit your purposes. You can setup an Action to automatically run OCR on a folder of PDF files. Here is a quick tip that explains the Action capability in Acrobat X Pro.

    I don't know if it's any use to you, but Adobe LiveCycle PDF Generator seems to have OCR.
