TopOCR's Image Processing Functions

TopOCR can automatically perform its basic image processing operations, but it is also equipped with a complete document image processing system for manual processing of images. This gives you the opportunity to experiment with combinations of functions to increase OCR accuracy (we encourage you to experiment!). This system is easy to use and is accessible from the Image Menu on the Image Window.
