Scanner Pro is the best iPad and iPhone scanner app that turns your device into a portable scanner. Get it now, if haven't done so yet.

Text Recognition gives you the power to extract words from scans and make the PDFs searchable.

For OCR our app uses iTunes On-demand Resources library.

To use text recognition for scanned documents, do the following:

  1. Open a document and tap three dots in the upper right corner
  2. Choose Recognize Text (OCR)
  3. Wait until the processing is over and choose Show as Text

Automatic Text Recognition (OCR) is disabled by default in Scanner Pro. To enable this functionality, please follow a few simple steps:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Scroll to Text Recognition (OCR)
  3. Enable Automatic Text Recognition and choose languages

The next time you scan a document, Text Recognition will start automatically.
