BACKFILE CONVERSION

To start the file conversion, you need to install an optical character recognition device on your computer. Using ABBYY FineReader, you can easily convert a scanned file into text, and after editing and making corrections, you can save it in the desired format.

Earlier versions of the program had problems with some characters’ display: company seal, signature. Now there are no such problems. Each element is displayed clearly with no distortion.

When working with the program, we advise you to adhere to several tips:

  1.  If the document was scanned using ScanSnap, it cannot be converted into PowerPoint, Excel, or Word if the security was configured. That is, if the user does not know the password and login, he will not be able to fully work with the document. Only the administrator has such rights.
  2.  You can export an image from Word to (.docx), from PowerPoint to (.pptx), and from Excel to (.xlsx).
  3.  You need to register in the program and authenticate your license to view and check the converted document. After that, you will be able to use all the functions of the software.
  4.  The settings for working with a document are changed directly in the program itself.

First, start the program and select the scanner. Then conduct optical character recognition pdf or any other format. The scanned file will be displayed in a window. You can simultaneously scan the remaining documents while continuing the work with the first file. Any errors will be shown in red. For example, there can be errors or poor quality text in the source, where characters have been heavily erased. For your convenience, choose the language in which the menu will be displayed. It can be directly set when installing the software or in the settings. After the text is processed, save it by selecting the available format in the window.

The PDF format displays the exact format of the document, regardless of the parameters of the installed system. But users have faced the problem of making changes. This was especially true for the conclusion of contracts. Since the sent document had to be retyped in Word. The ABBYY FineReader program could solve the problem by speeding up the flow of documents among the parties. It made it possible not only to convert and edit but also to compare copies with each other. Together with OCR, it became possible to access the formatting to any image, even to photo documents.

 

Working with PDF files requires a special approach. If you need to make a data archive, the document is saved in PDF/A. Government agencies, working in DMS and eDiscovery, mostly transfer information in PDF, including PDF/A searches. This makes it easier to further process the file and convert it to other formats.

 

For example, by converting a PDF into a Word document, the user can edit text data. It is proper for invoices, contracts, reports, articles. After the conversion, the document can be saved as a PDF or (.docx).

 

If the conversion is done in Excel, work is done with spreadsheets, charts, graphs, and other information. As in the first variant, the conversion is in the original format or in (.xlsx). This is useful for price lists, research reports, and newspaper articles.

 

Conversion into RTF from PDF is performed when a document is transferred from one system to another. For example, from Windows to Mac or Linux.

 

Converting PDF format to EPUB makes it easier to read books electronically on mobile devices, allowing the text to be adjusted to the screen parameters and the font to be increased or decreased. Converting a document into HTML is useful for publishing it on websites for public display.

 

ABBYY FineReader enhances the possibilities of information processing and allows the users to speed up work with various types of documents. You can simply leave an application on our site or write to our chat room to purchase the program. Our employees will help with the installation and configuration of the software for your system.
