Once the text you want to save in editable format is loaded and you have defined the pages you want to convert, you can start the operation. Larger projects will somewhat slow down the process, but for those having few pages, it will finish quite quickly.

The optimal character recognition feature converted the text accurately. Additionally, it was able to read our cell phone image or some low resolution image from the internet.

Based on our tests, Advanced OCR Free will not perform miracles with detecting characters, but provided that the text is clean and there are no elements hindering the detection of the characters, the app will do a pretty good job. However, this does not mean the result won't have to be proofread.

I've needed to scan in printed pages and convert them to plain text. This program has worked perfectly in recognizing all the words on my scanned documents. Obviously there will be some formatting to do after the conversion but that's normal, for a free program this one works great.
