Using OCR scanning

Optimal Character Recognition (OCR) scanning allows your scanner to convert scanned images into text format. This is the perfect solution for documents that need to be edited or simply need to be presented more professionally than a handwritten document.

As it becomes more important for businesses to keep clear and accurate records, OCR scanning presents a great solution by producing digitised records in editable text formats that are easy to read.

For industries where handwritten notes frequently need to be recorded, such as healthcare or education, OCR scanning is particularly useful. Healthcare professionals can use OCR scanning to upload patient notes or records easily to hospital databases. Businesses can easily input handwritten customer feedback into data sets. Even students can benefit from OCR scanning, easily turning notes in to text documents.

Choosing an OCR capable scanner

Many of our scanners can be OCR enabled through additional software, such as BizCard OCR, which is included with a selection of our document scanners like the ADS-2200.

When choosing a scanner for OCR scanning, you’ll want a solution that can produce high-quality images, enabling the OCR software to recognise text. Brother has a range of OCR compatible scanners that produce high DPI resolution scans, perfect for converting to text or simply collecting high quality document scans.

Consider choosing a document scanner that includes OCR software, so that you’ll be ready to scan documents into text formats straight away.
