OCR Fax Services: Easily Converts Fax to Text
Fax Optical Character Recognition, or OCR, is a feature that allows you to manipulate or edit the text from faxes you receive electronically.
Most electronic faxes are sent as .tif images; a file format that cannot be edited. But ISC's OCR fax services convert that inbound fax to plain text, allowing you to edit, copy or cut text from that fax message and import it into another file format, such as Microsoft Word, Excel or other programs.
With OCR fax to text, you:
- Will receive both the original fax and the editable, plain text version
- No longer need to manually type content from a faxed tif image into another document
- Can easily paste the plain text into another file format
In its plain text version, our OCR fax software strips away all tif formatting. But it will preserve critical information such as time and date stamps, and any other information you specify.
