OCR commandline utility able to convert scanned images into a PDF format, including both image and text in a standard container. This increases the value of your intellectual capital, allowing you to best utilize your documents with any search engine
Description: Intelliant OCR is an optical character recognition commandline utility, able to convert scanned images into a searchable PDF format, including both image and text in a same standard container. This increases the value of your intellectual capital, allowing you to best utilize your image documents with any search engine. It is remarkably fast, light (the installator weighs only 5 Mb) and the recognition function makes quite a nice job for the main european languages. Several text and image compression methods allow to enormously reduce the size of the documents. Input images can be in all the flavours of the TIFF format, monochrome, gray scale or color images, even already encapsulated in a PDF document. Output documents can be in ASCII format, smart ASCII (tries to produce text as much like the original image as possible), RTF and PDF. You can specify all security options and properties (title, author, subject and keywords) in the version 1.4 of Adobe PDF format.
Above all it can be easily integrated in your existing document management system. As a demonstration, we provide configuration files allowing you to plug Intelliant OCR "out of the box" into Alfresco document management system (the leading open source alternative for enterprise content management). For example, you will be able to define OCR transformations that you can use within basic content rules (for example, transform to PDF all TIFF images dropped into a specific folder).
