PowerScan Productivity Suite

PowerScan Productivity Suite (PPS) is a group of OCR software tools for working with microfilm. What makes this possible is having licensed and incorporated ABBYY fine reader OCR software into our PowerScan software. Many researchers pick the ABBYY OCR software for speed and accuracy. We get a lot of positive response for this software package (sold as optional software).

We’re revolutionizing the way you use microlm. With the ScanPro’s new OCR technology you can search for words you select, link directly to information sources, copy selected areas as text to the
clipboard, or convert your entire microlm image to word searchable PDFs, all with a single click of the live image on your view screen. These OCR features are available as the PowerScan Productivity Suite. This optional software can be added at any time to yourScanPro 3000, ScanPro 2000 or ScanPro 1000.

The e-ImageData OCR features for microfilm are powered by ABBYY Fine Reader. This world class OCR software is consistently picked by researchers for accuracy and speed. We have licensed the ABBYY Fine Reader engine and integrated it into the ScanPro software to bring you powerful, easy to use features for working with microfilm. 

This software lets researchers, genealogists, librarians and patrons have access to microfilm with unlimited OCR features: WORD-Search, INFO-Link, copy selected areas as text, and create word searchable PDFs. These features work with the image that you see on the view screen. 

A single click and you see it happen. It is easy, fast and makes working with microfilm fun.

  • Find words right on your microfilm image without having to read through the entire page. Just enter the word that you are looking for in the search box and if it is on the microfilm, it will be highlighted every where it appears. 
  • Use INFO-Link to get more information about what you see on your microfilm. Just click to highlight a word or words and then select the internet reference source that you want to use like Wikipedia, a thesaurus, or a dictionary.
  • Select information that you see on your microfilm image and copy it to the clipboard as editable text for pasting into any document or presentation. 
  • With a single click you can convert any microfilm image to a word searchable PDF, single page or multiple page.
