Hi everyone,

I need  some help in order to work properly with thousand of documents that need to be researchable on Google Drive.

 

How can use the OCR on google drive files? Is there any app add-on?
I have the premium account but even logged in it does not appear an option to transform scanned files in texts.

 

Best,

 

Kah.

Hi John,

 

I have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC provided by the company I work for; however, it has been of little help since all hundres of files I have to access every day are scanned files Google Drive.

My team and I work with a lot of sensitive documents, so we must always edit them online and also we need to do a lot of research without downloading them. When I use the Adobe add-on I can see some functions to split the file, make commnents and delete pages indeed, but no OCR reading.

Am I missing any resource of Adobe capabilities? Is there any cloud techonolgy allowing OCR without requing us to download the file?

Thank you!

To answer your questions, no.

OCR is what happens when your scanner translates the image to readable text. This usually occurs on the devices that you scan with, not online.
