CuneiForm is a quick and user-friendly tool whose function is to act as an Optical Character Recognition software, enabling you to turn scanned documents into editable text, in just a few clicks.
The application is fairly simple to understand and work with, allowing you to load images both from local folders or from your scanning device. It supports the input of a variety of formats, including JPG, BMP or PNG.
CuneiForm provides you with a 'Recognition Wizard' to guide you through all the required steps in order to load the image you want to work with, either from your computer or from your scanner, along with other preferences, then select the language. If the source file contains symbols from other languages, it is advisable that you choose the corresponding one, such as French, Russian or Hungarian.
Moreover, CuneiForm allows you to perform spell checking operations on the retrieved text, aimed mainly at common words, as they are compared to dictionary terms for accuracy. Also, the utility has the ability of performing OCR operations on tables and pictures. After processing your image, CuneiForm enables you to export your text to MS Word format or RTF files. This way, you can work with your files in an editable form, copying or pasting the information in other applications, for instance.
CuneiForm can prove quite handy, particularly if your job involves numerous pages of scanned files. You would waste a vast amount of time typing their contents by hand, so CuneiForm helps you speed up the process by analyzing your files and retrieving the text you need, allowing you to make any additional alterations to the output result. Nonetheless, you have to keep in mind that the quality of the recovered text also depends on the scanned documents.
