OCR is an acronym for Optical Character Recognition and describes the technique of translating an image of a text, obtained through scanning, faxing, or other imaging system, into the standard text data that is used in computing.

In Udocx, scanned documents are converted to PDF/A files with optional OCR text.  When OCR is enabled, the resulting PDF may be searched, text may be copied and pasted into other documents, and the PDF may be indexed by document management systems for future reference.
