Thank you for clarifying some of the more misunderstood aspects of MFP scanning. I understand its uses more fully now. Thanks for the great resource!

You're welcome and thanks for commenting. People have suggested that I should publish a post on the advantage of standalone scanners over MFPs. There are many.

Can I OCR a document for editing using ecopy desktop?

Bill Brikiatis

Frank -- What a timely question. Yesterday eCopy announced availability of the next generation of eCopy Desktop, which is now called eCopy PaperWorks. You can OCR a scanned document using either eCopy Desktop or eCopy PaperWorks and create a text or Word document.

The OCR capability of eCopy PaperWorks is improved over eCopy Desktop, so I would recommend that you use PaperWorks.

You can try this for yourself for free by going to http://www.ecopy.com/Products-eCopy-PaperWorks.asp and downloading the 45-day trial version on the right hand side of the page.

Toshiba has a proprietary software that allows for OCR it is called Re-Rite and functions very well. It is a enterprise software which is much less expensive for larger companies then the per user PaperWorks software.

Thanks for commenting Tina. This is a good point. Please also note that Nuance has free PDF Reader software that provides highly accurate OCR for scanned documents. So you can scan from your Toshiba MFP as a PDF and convert it to Word or RTF using the free PDF Reader. You can down load the reader at http://www.nuance.com/imaging/products/pdf-reader.asp
