Recognize text using OCR

Choose your files in which text should be recognized by OCR. Modify the settings and start the process. A few seconds later, new files with recognized text are available.

You can make various settings to control the ORC process. You can save as PDF / A, remove artifacts, straighten pages, set metadata and join multiple files.

Easy to use

PDF24 makes it as easy and quick as possible for you to recognize text via OCR. You don't have to install anything, just select your files or images and start the ORC process.

Supports your system

There are no special requirements placed on your system to recognize text using OCR. The app works in your browser and creates searchable PDFs from e.g. scanned files.

No installation necessary

You don't need to install any software. The text recognition is carried out on our special servers. Your system is not stressed and does not require any special requirements.

Security is important to us

The security of your files and results is important to us. The file transfer is protected by SSL and your files are no longer accessible on our server than necessary.
