OCR Software for Cameras and Smartphones - only $4.99
TopOCR is designed to be simple and user-friendly for scanning documents with cameras, document cameras, autofocus webcams, smartphones, and yes, even scanners!
Just plug your device into your PC's USB port, and you can open image files in the image window and automatically see the OCR output in the text window.
TopOCR combines a full featured Image Editor and Word Processor with advanced Image Processing and high-speed Optical Character Recognition technology.
For document cameras and autofocus 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.
Need to translate your scanned documents?
With TopOCR's Auto-Translate mode, you can scan printed material written in one language and instantly translate it into another language with just a single click.
TopOCR also provides an easy to use Image Processing Toolkit that can be accessed with just a few mouse clicks.
Plus for those who have difficulty reading printed material, there's a Multilingual Accessible Keyboard User Interface that can scan and read in 11 different languages.
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 automatically fix problems caused by low contrast and low light conditions.
If you're using a document camera or autofocus webcam, and you use paper clips or your fingers to hold documents flat for better image capture, 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 automatically with its Automatic Text Orientation Correction that transforms images to their correct orientation whenever they're captured.
TopOCR also provides automatic paragraph straightening that can correct document skew as well as reduce page curvature from books.
It can also handle multi-column images from books and magazines as well as single column receipts.
Feel the need for speed? Then you're really going to love TopOCR!
While other OCR applications are still struggling on their first page, TopOCR will be zooming past page 4!
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 straightforward User Interface makes it simple for you to quickly capture a large volume of document images, such as a book in just minutes. The 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, rotate the image to the correct orientation, OCR the image, copy the OCR text output into the multi-page text editor, and spell-check the text. Just flip the page, and you can repeat the process until you've finished capturing an entire book. Thanks to this streamlined workflow, your throughput is greatly accelerated. With TopOCR, you're not working harder, just smarter!
