Need your scanned docs rendered search-friendly? Check out OCR Online (link here), a service that converts your scanned documents into text files for searching and editing. OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition and OCR Online does it for free. There are limitations – OCR Online only permits uploading 100 documents per day, so it probably won’t do for that big class action lawsuit with massive discovery requests. But, it does allow you to load multiple images at once.
Simply set your language, choose your output (MS Word, PDF, Rich Text format or Text), attach and upload. And, as an added bonus, OCR Online gives links to other cool free sites:
Convert Files – a free online file converter that can convert between most of the common file types.
Video Toolbox – a free online video editor beats the feature set of many desktop commercial products.
Audio Expert – a free and simple online audio editor, file converter and sound recorder.
Text To Links – a tool to turn text into links that you easily follow.
Go get it done!
