Go professional, with OCR and barcode recognition
The new ExactScan Pro version includes an OCR engine to create easily searchable documents with a fingertip on-the-fly. Just select the language from your document in the OCR preferences and start to scan - some number crunching and a few seconds later you receive your searchable document.
Together with Spotlight, the built-in indexing service of Apple's Mac OS 10.5 this already forms a quite powerful document management solution for small office / home office (SOHO) environments.
Supported OCR languages: English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish.
Additionally barcode recognition is also built-in, and allows to find the recognized codes in your digitalize documents. Common uses of barcodes in the work-flow include automatic identification of products, delivery or invoice IDs.
Supported barcodes: EAN, UPC, CODE25, CODE39, CODE128
Of course, the Professional version includes all the features of the standard version, including: auto-crop & de-skew, intelligent binarization, blank page detection, intuitive filing, Scan 2 Print, AppleScript support and over 200 built-in scanner drivers, a TWAIN interface, as well as: automatic over-the-internet updates to stay up-to-date.
The OCR engine of the professional ExactScan 2 Pro version is only available for Intel Macs and not a universal binary. However, the remaining professional features (for example barcode recognition, and file processing) are available on PowerPC Macs, too.
