Use Raster Design OCR to Extract Text from a Scan


Using Raster Design to Extract Text from a Scanned Image


Jeff Bartels of Autodesk covers the AutoCAD Raster Design OCR Text conversion of a legal description from a scan image.
From the Jeff's YouTube Channel.
and the Civil Imersion blog.

Covered are the basics of greyscale to bitonal image type conversion in Raster Design.
Jeff demos some of the "Conversion with your Brain Engaged" tools that are so useful in and about Raster Design.
If you have a newer version of Microsoft Office (there are other apps) the spoken check at the end is more the useful fun too.
