Let’s say you’ve got a paper document, for example a contract, epitome or a magazine article which you need to introduce in computer and edit some lines. Obviously, a scanner is not enough to make this information available for editing but it can create a image or a snapshot of the document. To extract data from scanned document, camera image or image-only PDF, you need an OCR software.
