Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a process that converts scanned images and documents into editable, searchable formats. OCR helps your computer to recognize letter shapes in a scanned document and turn them into text you can copy and edit as needed. This allows you to extract information from documents quickly and easily. OCR also enables these texts to be used in key data and text mining projects. This workshop will give attendees a basic understanding of how to make use of optical character recognition software, including Adobe Acrobat Pro, ABBYY FineReader, and Tesseract, in their research, as well as give them a chance for hands-on experience with these programs in the Scholarly Commons.
