This is a command line based application that is able to convert image files to HTML formatted documents.
VeryPDF Image to HTML OCR Converter is a Command Line application. It uses Optical Character Recognition technology to convert image documents to editable HTML files. There is no need for the Adobe Acrobat product. Being OCR based, the tool will actually be capable of converting any document based on character images to the computer readable characters. The format of the document is really speaking irrelevant. The image formats that can be handled through this program include TIFF, BMP, PNG, JPG, PCX, TGA, etc. The source document can even be scanned PDF documents. The program can handle up to 10 languages meaning that it can recognize the character sets from these languages. These languages include German, French, Spanish, Italian and others.
The conversion accuracy with OCR programs largely depends on the image quality and the fonts used in the image documents. If the images have a lot of noise or are skewed the results can deteriorate very quickly. Thus if you need such a tool and are looking around to find one, you need to evaluate it. Evaluation should follow the exact workflow you use so that the effect of the image quality and the fonts will come out directly. An image processing tool with some minimal features like noise removal and de-skewing would have been really nice. While integrating this command line tool into your application, these considerations should be taken into account.
