tool: OmniPage

A software tool capable of performing Optical Character Recognition (OCR) upon a set of images. It achieves the task by analysing pixel sets and in an image and cross-matching them to a dictionary of words. Omnipage automates large sections of the digitisation process enabling physical objects to be scanned, processed using the OCR software and exported to a document file format. Later versions of the software incorporate image enhancement features to improve scan quality (and recognition results) and better support for complex page layouts and forms.
