What is (a9t9) Free OCR Software?
This fast and OCR software extracts text from image files and PDF items.
The application is available as web service (online OCR), or as open-source Windows store app. If you want to automate OCR, you can call the OCR API (Rest) from your own program or script.
You can open an image or PDF file. The OCR conversion is fast and has a very good conversion quality.
Note that there is an older version for the Windows Desktop. It is also open-source but the conversion quality is not as good as it uses the somewhat outdated Tesseract OCR engine. Better use the new OCR web app or the Windows 8/10 store app.
