VovSoft OCR Reader - Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is the electronic or mechanical conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text, whether from a scanned document, a photo of a document.
OCR technology makes it possible for you to extract text from photos and turn it into editable content. While there are multiple OCR tools available online and many of them free, some prefer using a dedicated desktop tool instead. If that is the case with you as well, then you can try the OCR Reader Portable. Available both as a portable application and a standard installer-based tool, OCR Reader Portable provides you with a simple means of extracting text from an image and saving it for later use.
Load an image file to extract the text in it
Like many of the software utilities created by the same developer, OCR Reader Portable features an overly simple interface with a minimal number of options. In other words, the GUI is meant to be uncomplicated to make usage as easy as possible.
To begin, you simply must load the desired image file or the scanned document containing the text you want to extract. VOVSOFT – OCR Reader comes with a few samples for you to test its functionality, so you can begin with those.
Tesseract-based neural networks OCR engine
OCR Reader Portable can only extract text in English, but there is a shortuct within the main window that helps you jump to the page of the Tesseract and download whichever of the 100 languages supported by the popular OCR engine.
It is worth mentioning that the application’s OCR engine relies on a neural network (LSTM) that allows the recognition of character patterns. This is meant to increase the accuracy of the software.
As a plus, all the operations and conversions are carried out offline, without sending any image or data in the online world.
An offline, accurate OCR application
OCR Reader Portable is a handy OCR tool to have around, especially since it is also available as a portable application that can be carried around and used on the go whenever needed. It protects your privacy by using the OCR engine in offline mode and it is available for use at any time, even in the absence of an active Internet connection.
Digitize scanned documents
Vovsoft OCR Reader can easily digitize image files and scanned documents. This application utilizes Tesseract OCR engine, which supports more than 100 languages. It uses a neural network (LSTM) based OCR engine which is focused on line recognition, but also can recognize character patterns.
Image to text converter
This program allows you to extract text from image files using Optical Character Recognition. The best part of the program is that the conversion is done completely offline. You are the only controller of your private data. No image file is sent to internet in any case.
