Batch converting a folder of TIFF or PDF files to searchable PDF
Searchable PDF is fast becoming the most desired way of reproducing scanned pages. With a standard tiff or PDF file, the image is, in effect, a photograph. Searchable PDF creates a text layer under the document that can be searched to help you jump to a keyword or phrase.
It is possible to create searchable PDFs as you are scanning and numerous Capture applications including Canon Capture Perfect or Kofax Express will do this. For this to work well, the scanning application needs to be sophisticated enough to allow batch processing in the background without slowing down the scanning. Kofax Express does this beautifully.
But what happens when you already have an archive of electronic documents and want to make them intelligent, like a searchable PDF or recreate the contents into editable form like XML / Word? In these circumstances you will need a program that can recreate a folder structure in your preferred format.
There is a good choice of solutions in the market but as ABBYY Partners, our recommendation is ABBYY Recognition Server. This program is designed for significant volumes and allows you to harness the power of multiple PCs by harvesting unused processing power. This is ideal when you have millions of pages and a tight deadline.
This server product is a robust document server program, designed to handle significant volumes of information and to process 24/7. Whether you are creating searchable PDFs or extracting barcode values into an XML file, Abbyy will handle your volumes in an efficient and reliable way.
