Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you need to convert images to text?
Businesses receive a lot of images that entail important information. But this format doesn’t allow for further processing of data. 

Therefore, it is important to convert an image to text and thus enable the company to work with the extracted data. The extracted data can then easily be saved in the company’s database. 
How to accurately extract text from images?

Originally done manually, the process is error-prone, time-consuming, expensive and boring. But how to do it differently? 

With an intelligent solution like Klippa DocHorizon, data can be extracted automatically. This means, the software will detect the important fields and accurately extract text from images

This is only possible because the model has been trained with many document samples. The algorithm learned which data fields have to be extracted based on the recognized document type.  
How can OCR transform your business?
With OCR, manual data processing is history. Accelerate the success of your business by automating your document related workflows and freeing up your employees from daunting paper work.

You will not only save time, but also decrease your costs, increase employee engagement and motivation and be able to base your business decisions on accurate data.

With the right solution, you can eliminate errors, reduce manual entry mistakes and digitize documents within seconds.   
Which document file formats can be processed?
Klippa’s software can process PDF, PNG, JPG and other file formats and convert them to JSON, PDF/A, XLSX, CSV and XML. 

The output of our software is very flexible and can be adjusted to your needs. 
Why is extracting text from images difficult?
There are several reasons for why it is difficult to extract text from images

1. Scanned images don’t contain any text that can be selected and then extracted.

2. Often, images are not clear enough and the quality is low. Then it becomes very difficult for the OCR to read out the text. 

3. Furthermore, when the format of a document differs and has variations, it becomes difficult for the OCR to detect the important fields.

Despite the difficulties, OCR software is able to extract text from images in a faster, more accurate and cheaper way than when done manually.  
What are different ways to convert image to text?
There are different ways to convert images to text

Of course, you can find free online solutions that offer a free OCR tool. Usually, they work perfectly fine for lower document volumes and convert images to text in an accurate way. 

But often, these online tools come with their limitations, as scalability is limited and the integration into your company’s system non existent.

One interesting way to extract text from images is using Google Docs. You can upload an image to Google Drive and then open it with Google Docs. It will automatically extract the text from the image and display it below the image.

Once you need to process high volumes of documents, a paid OCR solution would be advisable. That way you can ensure to get proper service and, depending on the vendor you choose, custom solutions.
