Business owners and others stuck with scans, PDFs, or image file containing words they can’t edit now have an accurate and affordable conversion option: the new web-based service BetterOCR.com.

The site provides free and low-cost optical character recognition (OCR) services, and can turn virtually any scanned page or image file into an editable text document.

“All OCR software makes mistakes. BetterOCR is hands down the most accurate image-to-text service, because it’s the only one that utilizes smart humans to proofread the OCR text,” said Kevin Savetz, the site’s creator.

“Now, there’s no need for you or your staff to waste time re-typing text that you already have right in front of you,” Savetz said. “BetterOCR.com will turn your PDF and image files into text files you can open in any word processing program.”

BetterOCR.com offers three levels of service, from free to top-quality, quick-turnaround file conversion with text edited by professional proofreaders.

There’s a basic, Free OCR service, which uses software to convert scans or other image files into editable text. However, there may be mistakes, formatting problems and a need to proofread the text yourself. The paid options, Budget OCR and Better OCR, promise top-quality text proofread by real people.

“Our premium service combines the power of great OCR software with the minds of human editors, to give you accurate, ready-to-use documents,” Savetz said.

The Budget OCR service is 99 cents per page and is 95 percent accurate, with orders are completed within one week. All pages are expertly proofread.

For faster turnaround, and best for most professional uses, there is the $1.99-per-page Better OCR service. This choice guarantees that documents will be 99 percent accurate, proofread by professional editors. Orders are completed in three days.

BetterOCR.com accepts PDF, PNG, GIF, TIF and ZIP files. To convert a file to text, upload the file (or many files in a ZIP). After conversion and proofreading, the editable text files are available for download. You can check the status of your project online, and reject (send back for more proofreading) any files you find unacceptable.

Savetz Publishing, Inc. is a company devoted to creating useful and informative web sites of interest to consumers and small businesses. Its services include the popular FaxZero free fax solution, as well as 70 websites in the FreePrintable.net family of free printables sites.
