With this feature, any character that Readiris does not initially recognize will be displayed with a few suggestions. You then “teach” the program by selecting the appropriate character. Readiris then saves the character in its dictionary for the next time.
- Page Deskewing
The command "Deskew Page" straightens pages which were scanned at an angle for optimised OCR recognition accuracy

Unique handprinted text recognition

Readiris Pro automatically recognizes text, graphics, and tables. This information is perfectly reproduced in the output file. You can even choose your preferred paper format (A4, letter, etc.)

- Text formatting
When processing a document, you select how you want the OCR results to be shown in your new document:
"Create body Text": You get a plain text block without any formatting.
"Retain Word and Paragraph": the font’s type, size, and style are maintained. Tabs other formatting is recreated and tables are correctly reproduced.
"Recreate Source Document" recreates a facsimile copy of the original document with text blocks, tables, graphics, bulleted and number lists recreated in the same place and the word and paragraph formatting maintained. You get a true copy of your source document in an editable text file, no longer a scanned image of your document.
