I. Scanners have become more and more common

I believe that many people are accustomed to the existence of scanners in their daily office. But there are still many people who don't know why we need scanners and OCR software because they think there is no difference between scanning paper files with scanners and taking photos with mobile phones. Why do we have to use scanners and OCR software? I believe many people have this question, so let me answer your questions.

II. Why do we need a scanner and OCR software?

​In fact, this problem is very simple, and the main reason is the difference between the scanning effects of the two. The effect of recognition after taking pictures of mobile phones and scanning by scanners is completely different. The scanning results from scanners are more clear and complete, and the recognition of text is much higher.

In short, the main reasons why we need a scanner are the following 3 points:

  1. Required for archiving.
  2. To reduce the accumulation of paper.
  3. The digitization of information is easier for long-term preservation and easier to find later.

With OCR technology, the scanner can recognize multiple languages. With just one click, you can easily convert any scanned page into an editable document.

Of course, whether to use the scanner and OCR software is still up to you, but I believe that as long as you experience the benefits it brings, you will love it.
