I have a tif file in Tahoma format, performing OCR gives junks only, how can i change it to doc.
I was going to submit a long post to try and help explain why this
simple request is actually quite a complex problem, but let me be
brief instead ;)
There is no way to simply 'convert' an image (tif) into a text based
file (ie doc or txt). The formats are not compatible.
Sorry it's that simple.
You can, however, make a new document and put the picture into it
if you don't need editable text, the other option is that you have
to re-type it with (or without) the 'help' of OCR.
If it's short I would suggest you re-type it yourself, if it's long...
Yes can use an OCR program but you will have a lot of work to do
correcting the errors that the OCR program will make. If you are a
business it may be best to get a proper typist to re-type it for you.
I work in the printing business and I have had to do this and a big
(120 page) document can take 40-60 hours of work after OCR-ing it.
A properyly skilled typest can be faster but then you will
have to re-format as well so it will still take a lot of time.
It is, simply, a very time consuming process as you are creating a
whole new document :(
PS if it some kind of legal document I would suggest that you need
to use a program that will let you insert the tif image into it as
re-creating it can cause serious legal problems if any errors are
caused when it's re-typed.
Yes this is the short post :)
Hi, thanks for all the information. now it is easy to convert any image to editable and searchable doc, pdf, html files using ocr software. however, good quality ocr software are not available for download. The only ocr software I was able to freely download and try was Image to OCR Converter available at http://products.softsolutionslimited.com/img2ocr/index.htm It does a fairly good job of ocr processing.
