OCR Online, a service for recognizing text from scanned documents and pictures - video tutorial

Often you were probably in a position to need the text in a picture, or have had the image of a scanned bill, or have to do a license for end of school year, and it's quite unpleasant for some to sit, to type each word in Microsoft Word. In order to ease the work we could scan pages containing text that we need a license to work but how to take those pictures or text from images imported from the scanner? Nothing could be simpler!
Online OCR (Optical Character Recognition) is an online service that will expire to extract text from a photo or image of any type, giving you after extracting the document in the following formats:
Adobe PDF (pdf)
Excel (xls)
4.0 HTML (HTML)
MS Word (doc)
Word RTF (rtf)
Plain Text (txt)
If the text in the image is in a language other than Romanian, you can select what kind of recognition to make this work, I basically say what language is the text currently in the picture and it will do the rest for you. Service is extremely simple to use and easy! This tutorial is just the beginning of this topic by following us to address in a future tutorial and software to do this in a professional way and to be integrated with Microsoft Office. A software that does this is ABBY FineReader.
But what both a longer, better let to follow along this video tutorial that shows OCR!
Remember, we are waiting for opinions and suggestions in the comments box.
Enjoy!

All those who will ask me I will direct you to this videotutorial and probably the next about ABBY FineReader.

    If you like my tutorials you can always press the button to stop, or does not give freedom to play the tutorial. See the tutorial little left over each write the name of the man who made so that when you see a tutorial made by me ask you not to give play. Simple is not it?

    What phones? seems to confuse me! If you're too smart as I said above you're free to play is not as simple and easy it can not all have your own understanding, and trust me that others really need all the details, read all the comments from all the tutorials and to see how many people, although the tutorial will answer questions! Perhaps not everyone knows English and really need the smallest details. You forget one thing! This tutorial does NOT addressed to you personally! But to all who visit this site!

    Yes, you're right, some multifunction printers come with such software in the package. Let's leave the man… he also said his opinion, it's not important alone, and I won't give up doing tutorials just because Cristi didn't like it , We are all important, most of them, forest without drylands does not exist, I am sure that if I asked him to do only 5 minutes of this tutorial he would not have the courage and it would not come out better than mine. We don't do studio montages, we don't shoot doubles, the tutorials are spontaneous! It is very difficult to do a tutorial, although it seems easy. Your mind has to be divided in two and a half, it has to think about what you are saying at the moment and the other has to be one step ahead before you know what you are going to say, what not to forget to say. We don't read from the paper, we don't have a prompt like Andreea Esca from the pro TV news, simply everything we say in the tutorial comes momentarily and spontaneously! Cristi, don't think that this is my first tutorial, I have others, you can't be all the same, maybe today I had a bad day, maybe I had a better mood at the others, maybe at this tutorial I I felt bad… Have you thought about all this? It's easy to judge, to criticize, but it's very difficult to do!

  22. CORLEONE said

    Do you you know how to judge that the tutorials better after you give up then great if you do not like looking at soap operas :) After the war many heroes! Knew you made without Adrian no? :): )

  23. You could make a tutorial on music programs created insrument like Melodi deastea reason to believe if I knew when he saw cae buntoane are we out you could make??

  24. Zavaidoc said

    Nothing justifies that if something is free, there can be quality! You do not have to read, just to have a sketch to help you put order in ideas. I know it's more complex, does work, but I think that will scare it. I am the speaker, and I made courses, but a brief outline helps. Eate professional, and this leads to quality. As for those that use offensive language, under the anonymity of the internet, it's your job to tolerate or penalized. Water pass stones remain. Continued success. Regards, LV

  45. Congratulations for your work. I do not believe that in a country such clever PSD metastases there may be good people like you. I propose that the future will not reoccur in comments such as the crap that guy above, because we are not interested in their opinion stupid. Divert our attention from serious things. Scum like that make it to stand out and how I can do good things, give the shit in the fan. Read comments made previously (site administrators), and heed their criticism but not display them as waste of precious time reading nonsense.

    Team videotutorial, as always, I send greetings and congratulations .. all before. Too bad some people do not know how to appreciate the work of others. Unfortunately it's our people. As one who works in administration will say that this tutorial of Lord Adrian fail to fix. A few days ago I received notice from superior bodies that the crisis will only mail via the Internet, by e-mail. Do you realize how important it is for us this mode (OCR)? I'm sure for other social groups (pupils, students, others) videotutorialul it is very useful. Abby FineReader There but for me (I'm older and more neexperimantat) is quite thick and is also very expensive. So, Sir Adrian, wait new videotutorial. Unlike your comments sometimes caustic and abrupt, but mostly grounded, have a pleasant voice and warm. We congratulate both situations! Lord knows why employees elect Cismaru Cristi!

    A more beautiful critique than this I have never seen in my life, I do not want to be praised, I am not perfect and I have never supported this, I just want to be respected if you want to be respected! I've always liked criticism, to be corrected but fao brother with common sense, diplomacy don't talk to me from above (as did nea cristi who commented very mischievously) I know and admit that many times I'm tough but that's how I am , I can't stand to see young people who only know how to ask who don't know how to say a simple thank you, of people who want everything ready, who only know mess and winamp, and who don't know how to do something else with a PC, not that they couldn't but they are lazy, I don't know how to read anymore, to cultivate, I only know porn and cosmine bird, they have no idea who wrote "Ion" or "Luceafarul" but I know what happens if you do it without preservative. A country of uneducated, uneducated, lazy young people, it is difficult for them to read a few lines. In vain we do tutorials if we do not go to get their hands on the mouse and do it in their place. This is how young people think, this is how Romanians think, they want everything free, and I think they deserve everything. I know how to "swallow" anything as long as you do it with diplomacy and respect. Honestly, I really liked your comment, take off your hat and you have all my respect because you respected me too!

    There is also the mobile version for such an option, so you no longer need to use your computer to do "some" relatively simplistic things, especially if you have some documents that you have to send to someone in the form of text. and you do not have a scanner at hand. You can directly from your phone (smartphone) much easier and free to remove text from a scanned document. Nokia has launched a free Nokia Multiscanner application that allows you to use your phone's camera as a scanner. documents, so after he "sees" them he will make a document with the written text.

    Thanks Luci, unfortunately not all have smartphones, computer users are more than those with smartphones.
    Also the computer is much easier document editing, has the larger keyboard is more comfortable to use.
    There is also about the character recognition accuracy, the scanner is scanning one another is the camera sensor then you still have to get to a printer (which is usually near a computer).
    Anyway your solution is very good, especially for when something has changed on the run (the notary, the lawyer in the office, at school).

    First of all know that you posted the wrong tutorial, this tutorial is about OCR technology with which you can convert a scanned document into editable text.
    In relation to your problem things are pretty simple, you must enter both computers in the same workgroup (Right click My Computer / Properties / Computer Name / Workgroup here below you (probably MSHOME, and you put another workgroup and repeat the both PCs still wizard must allow sharing site.
    This means that you have made the connection between the two correct crossover cable or switch that knows auto crossover and of course you set IPs properly.
    Then share uiesti what you want (right click on what you want / properties / sharing / etc etc.
    Good luck in the future and you try to post a tutorial about the subject.
