New with Report Miner 1.7 – Smart OCR

We’re pleased to announce that we have just released our latest version of PDF Report Miner that adds complete support for image-based PDFs and even PDFs that are part text and part image – via SmartOCR.

We do this through the introduction of a completely new analyzer that identifies key components within a PDF document and then determines whether they are text-based or image-based data. For image data, we then apply OCR. It is “smart” because we only apply OCR when there is an actual need; other solutions will simply run OCR on all documents or all pages of a document. By intelligently applying OCR, Report Miner can provide higher levels of throughput while expanding coverage to more documents within your stream.

Try it for yourself.
