OCR stands for (Optical Character Recognition). What OCR does is that it takes a document like a pdf or an image that has text in it and converts it into a form where you can edit the text. This tool can read different files types, PDF, JPG, GIF, TIFF or BMP and it displays text that you can copy and paste and edit into a text document. You can also upload documents in different langauges (English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, and Spanish for now). There are some limitations to the program. It can not read upside down text like a good ORC program that comes with a scanner can read and translates correctly. There is also a 2MB limit for the file size you can upload for each document.  If you are interested in learning more, click on the link below:
