OCR technology is especially relevant in a world where eBooks are quickly gaining popularity. It would take weeks to retype a book, manuals, textbooks, cookbooks and other text-based documents and weeks more to perform a file conversion. All of that can now be done quickly and easily with an OCR conversion.

Pre-OCR, converting illustrated books or other image-heavy documents (magazines, training manuals, etc.) was a nightmare. OCR has made all of these conversions not only possible, but much simpler, and with a little time image-heavy document conversions can now be done much more quickly and conveniently.
