OCR scanning converts an image of printed or typewritten text into machine-encoded text. This means that instead of converting your microfilm to image files, with OCR, we can convert your microfilm into editable files, such as word processing documents and spreadsheets. With OCR software, the text of your microfilm can be converted to searchable files, allowing you to find files based on phrases or keywords within them.
