OCR stands for optical character recognition. Basically, you can take any pre-scanned document like an article, essay, etc. and the program uses an internal library of characters, letters, spaces and numbers to “read” and create an editable document. All of the WIC computers have Adobe Professional X.
We also have one scanning station with Readiris. Readiris allows you to scan tables and graphs and output them into Word, Excel and other editable files. This is useful when using previously printed data in your own research. Readiris supports over 130 languages. Scan a book in French and convert it to an editable English document! Whoa!
