MyQ OCR Server

About MyQ OCR Server 3.0

Optical Character Recognition is a service that converts scanned documents to a searchable and editable format, such as an MS Word document or a searchable PDF. To employ this functionality in MyQ, you can either use the MyQ Optical Character Recognition (OCR) server, which is a part of the MyQ solution, or you can use a third-party application.

Unlike third-party OCR applications, the MyQ OCR Server is integrated with the MyQ system, which makes it simple to install and easy to use.

Within the installation of the server, you can utilize the Tesseract engine.
