SimpleOCR - Optical Character Recognition Software

SimpleOCR is the popular freeware OCR software with hundreds of thousands of users worldwide. SimpleOCR is also a royalty-free OCR SDK for developers to use in their custom applications.

If you have a scanner and want to avoid retyping your documents, SimpleOCR is the fast, free way to do it. The SimpleOCR freeware is 100% free and not limited in any way. Anyone can use SimpleOCR for free--home users, educational institutions, even corporate users. Accuracy With optical character recognition up to 99% accurate, there is no better OCR application for the price. This increased accuracy greatly reduces the need for post-recognition proof reading and correction. And after all, isn't that why you want to OCR the document in the first place? Of course it is!

Features :

  • Huge Dictionary - With more than 120,000 words, it is unlikely that SimpleOCR will run into a word it does not know.
  • Despeckle - For those documents which are not particularly clear (i.e. faxes, copies of copies, ...), SimpleOCR provides a despeckle or "noisy document" option which increases SimpleOCR's accuracy.
  • Format Retention - SimpleOCR can keep certain elements of the document's format in the recognized document.
  • Image Retention - Along with the document's text, SimpleOCR has the uncanny ability to capture and retain pictures from the document.
  • Plain Text Extraction - Just need the plain text from the original document? No problem. SimpleOCR can be set to recognize the characters and words but ignore the formatting. The resulting file is ready for your word processor or your HTML/web editor and your own custom formatting.
  • Simplified Error Correction - the text editor highlights suspected errors in the recognized text for easier correction.
  • Batch OCR - Do you have several documents to OCR? Just point SimpleOCR to them and it will OCR them from start to finish without delay.
  • Zone OCR - extract the text from a certain area in a document.
  • Input Formats - SimpleOCR works with all fully compliant TWAIN scanners and also accepts input from TIFF files.
  • Output Formats - SimpleOCR can save the documents it acquires in text formats (TXT and RTF) importable into most every program such as Word, WordPerfect, HTML editors, and e-mail programs, either fully formatted or as plain text. Additionally, it can save scanned documents in the industry standard TIFF format, a format as widely accepted as PDF files.
  • Multiple Language Recognition - SimpleOCR currently supports English and French recognition.
