Document Scanning, Document Conversion and Improvement

Document Scanning

Document scanning is a commonly used term, but the process is very different from converting or improving the document. Scanning a document results in an illustrated version of a document or an electronic copy of the paper document. It is a picture of the document without any intelligence, ie. searching or cutting and pasting to other documents.

Document Conversion

Document Conversion goes beyond the basic scan and includes the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) version of the text on the document.

Document Improvement

Document Enhancement takes document conversion one step further by adding images and signature meta tags and correcting the order in which tables and columns are read for use by assistive technologies such as screen readers.

What can be transformed or corrected?

Paper, microfilm, microfiche, and other source media can be converted to digital images. Conversion and Improvement may also include electronic files that require images and text to be presented in a different format.
