[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany – OCRKit uses advanced OCR – Optical Character Recognition – technology to recognize the text in graphics which is particular useful for photos of documents while on the go. It allows the user edit and furthermore copy and paste text to other iPhone applications. Unlike many other applications, OCRKit performs all image processing including the OCR directly on your iPhone. No image data is transferred to servers over the air therefore your data plan is saved and OCRKit still works abroad.
OCRKit has been developed with the main focus on usability, by providing a simple to use interface. Simply take a picture of a document, letter, contract, poster, note or business card and the OCR recognizes the text and shows it on the screen, ready to be processed. This allows the user to further edit and work with the text. OCRkit allows users to easily turn graphic information into text on the iPhone and iPad
The OCR engine requires a sharp image with macro focus, and thus works best with the iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S or iPad 3rd gen. The 5 mega-pixel camera in the iPhone 4, 4S and iPad 3rd gen, paired together with OCRKit, can potentially replace an entry-level portable scanners while working with paper documents abroad.
OCRkit comes with support for different OCR languages, including: English, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Spanish and Swedish.
