For document cameras and webcams, a single-click Real-Time WebCam Image Preview and Capture Dialog makes it easy for you to properly position your documents for scanning.
Select Your Choice of Output Formats and Tools
TopOCR's OCR text output can be saved in your choice of PDF/HTML/TXT/RTF file formats, or converted to eBook formats.
It also has a multilingual Text To Speech System that uses free Text To Speech Voices, allowing you to convert your documents into high quality speech and save them as MP3 files.
TopOCR's built-in Search Engine enables you to find any of your scanned documents instantly.
TopOCR also provides an easy to use Image Processing Toolkit that can be accessed with just a few mouse clicks.
Need to translate your scanned documents?
With TopOCR's Auto-Translate mode, you can automatically scan printed material written in one language and instantly translate it into another language.
You can even listen to the translated text on your PC's headset or speakers.
This is like having your own personal BabelFish Universal Translator, but without needing any fish-food!
Plus, for those who have difficulty reading printed material, TopOCR has a robust and incredibly easy to use, multi-lingual Accessible OCR User Interface.
In addition to having the ability to save the OCR text output in PDF text format, TopOCR can also read and write multi-page PDF image files. TopOCR also supports "Scan to PDF", so you can quickly and easily archive any number of scanned images as a single high resolution, multi-page PDF image file. You can also use TopOCR as a PDF to MP3 converter.
Simple Operation - Easy to Understand and Use
TopOCR's advanced image processing software can fix problems caused by low contrast and low light conditions.
If you're using a document camera, you can use paper clips or your fingers to hold documents flat for better image capture and they can be automatically cropped from the image border along with the background.
There's also no need to worry if your documents are upside down or sideways.
TopOCR can take care of this with its Automatic Text Orientation Correction that transforms images to their correct orientation whenever it does OCR, and also automatically when capturing images from document cameras and webcams.
TopOCR also provides Text Straightening on single-column or multi-column documents to correct document skew and reduce page curvature from books, and is also equipped with an edge enhancement filter to antialias text for improved readability and OCR accuracy.
It can also handle multi-column images from books and magazines as well as single column receipts and will automatically take advantage of multi-core CPUs to speed up low level image processing tasks.
TopOCR even provides good performance in low powered, ultra-portable Tablet PC's while automatically adjusting its GUI to the smaller screen size.
However, it's not just about features, it's also about usability, and a good design makes an application easy to understand and use. TopOCR's User Interface is built around a natural left-to-right work-flow model that allows you to automate the core process. With just a single-click you can capture an image, OCR the image, copy the OCR text output into the multi-page text editor, and spell-check the text. Thanks to this streamlined workflow, your throughput is greatly accelerated. With TopOCR, you're not working harder, just smarter!
