How to recognize text

Select your files you want to apply OCR for or drop the files into the active field. Modify the settings and start the OCR. After a few seconds you can download your new searchable PDF files.

OCR settings

You can modify several settings to control the OCR process. You can save as PDF/A, remove artefacts and noise, deskew pages, set meta information and join to a single output file.

Easy to use

We make it as easy as possible for you to recognize text via OCR. You don't need to install and worry about any software, you just have to choose your files you want to apply OCR for.

Supports your system

You do not need any special system to recognize text via OCR. This OCR tool runs in your browser and therefore functions under all operating systems. Just drop your files and start OCR.

No installation required

You don't need to download or install any software. The text is recognized on our servers in the cloud and therefore will not consume any resources from your computer.

Security is important to us

This OCR app does not store your files longer than necessary on our server. Your files and results will be deleted from our server after a short period of time. File transmissions are SSL secured.

This tool allows me to apply OCR to my scanned documents and invoices very easily. I get a searchable PDF/A back for archiving.
I use this app to convert images and photos taken with my smart-phone into searchable PDFs, so that I can search and copy text.
