What is OCR? What does it cost?

OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. OCR refers to a process of converting scanned images of text into machine-encoded digital text. At Convert A Book we have a sophisticated OCR process that allows us to convert physical printed material into eBook formats with near perfect accuracy. Our industry leading OCR scanners verify every word against three separate OCR technologies, and all discrepancies are checked manually to ensure accuracy.

Costs will vary depending on the project, but we have worked with a variety of styles including illustrated children's books, long texts and novels, and even journals. Contact us to discuss your goals for the project and see how we can bring the piece to life.
