Readiris Icon

Readiris is a professional optical character recognition (OCR) software package for Windows and Mac OS X that allows you to scan paper documents, open Microsoft Office documents, image files, and digital camera images and convert them into fully editable text documents and text-searchable PDF documents you can save, share and send to the Cloud. Readiris is using an advanced recognition engine that allows very accurate document recognition whilst preserving the original page layout.

Using this OCR software you can save valuable time that you would lose by retyping information from documents. It features a large set of PDF editing tools to help you accomplish everyday tasks.
