I'm currently trying to switch from archiving and storing my documents in a physical form to a digitalized one.
I've scanned all of my documents. The scan itself is stored as a 300dpi JPG image file.
I'm looking for a tool which can process those images to recognize text on them. Additionally it should provide some kind of "search" functionality for easy document lookup.
I'd consider the following as 'nice to have':
- Context analysis (recognizing multi-part documents)
- automatic grouping (e.g. by Date if date is printed on document)
- image correction (e.g. if image is upside-down)
- able to scan more types of documents (e.g. pdf, png, ..)
I plan to run this on either a Windows 2016 Server or on a Windows 10 Pro system. For me, it isn't important if the application itself is accessible through a web interface or a client application. Being able to access the files on mobile by providing an endpoint to connect to is also a nice bonus to have.
I'm willing to pay a one-time price of up to 100$, ... free is better ofc.
Any suggestions? Any experiences?
