PDF Tools AG has announced the 1.8 version release of its 3-Heights products. The new 3-Heights OCR Enterprise Add-On now provides compatibility for several 3-Heights products adding a text recognition feature.
The new 3-Heights OCR Enterprise Add-On provides the text recognition feature based on the ABBYY FineReader-Engine. This OCR Add-On can be used in combination with the 3-Heights Image to PDF Converter and the 3-Heights Document Converter Service. The OCR does not have a set page limit so even large data batches can be made full-text searchable, according to Carlo Nessi of PDF Tools AG.
The texts or parts of them can also be embedded in the metadata. The texts are directly embedded in Unicode in the document and in the format based on ISO standard (PDF 1.7, PDF/A).
With this release the company has also improved its line-up of PDF/A compliant products and the 3-Heights PDF Validator total PDF/A compliance has been certified by the Isartor-Testsuite from the PDF/A Competence Center, according to the company.
The latest version is available at the company web site as well as more detailed release notes.
