Sakhr Automatic Reader

Sakhr Automatic ReaderPC Magazine Editor's Choice Award 2003

Sakhr Automatic Reader transforms scanned images into a grid of millions of dots, optically recognizes the characters found in them and ultimately converts them into text. The complex nature of the Arabic language is evident in the cursiveness of the text, character overlapping, various character shapes, diacritics and the variety of calligraphic Arabic fonts that exist. As a result, these specific Arabic language complexities present major technical challenges in the Arabic OCR industry. The Automatic Reader, backed by Sakhr’s extensive experience in Arabic Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies, addresses these challenges effectively, thus providing Arabic users with an award-winning and high quality OCR solution.

Please note: Non-arabic languages (Pashto, Urdu, Farsi, & Jawi) are optional add-ons. Requires Automatic Reader Gold or Platinum to be installed.
