Ratings and Reviews
Need to still work with this but I ran out of credits already
2 of the 5 scans I took came out acceptable but I would like the option to make corrections - is this possible?
After I click to recognize the text, I could only view the end product if I was emailing. I would like to be able to view if I'm saving to clipboard also.
How do I get more credits? I need to work with this some more to see if it will do what I need it to do with my students.
Mobile OCR allows me to scan pdf and convert to text which I can copy to Pages, etc. Formatting initially disappears, but reappears when the text is copied and pasted into word processing app. I have tried it with some very challenging formatting and text styles, including italics and small print. It handled all very well. It does require wifi to convert text. Only negative is that the 5 daily credits do not seem to replenish, so it is not very useful as a free app (unless you uninstall and reinstall after 5 scans). However, unlimited scans seem to be a great investment. Customer support responded quickly and generously to my inquiry about their guarantee.
Works, a Sort of
The first test of a couple paragraphs of German text from a low resolution scan seemed to work really well, giving far better accuracy than a few other apps that I tried. It appeared to have lost the formatting but emailing it to myself, the formatting returned.
However, a second test of longer text in English simply gave nothing. No gibberish, just nothing. Running the same image, still loaded, again still gave nothing but took off another "point" from the available usages.
About the business model, if I buy software, I expect to have purchased it to use as needed but this company requires payment for each run of the OCR. If you have many scans to do and unlimited funds, this may be the way to go but not for me. It's rather an absurd way of doing things!
