ST Imaging Announces a New Software Option, ST OCR Searchable Text Tools

NORTHBROOK, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ST Imaging (ST) (, a technology provider of digital microfilm and book scanning technology, announced the release of a new version of its ViewScan software with a variety of enhancements and support for a new option, ST OCR Searchable Text Tools. “ST Imaging is constantly enhancing its software based upon feedback from our customers. One of the most requested features was the ability to convert an image into searchable text. This release adds support for the new ST OCR Searchable Text Tools option,” said Dan Donaldson, responsible for Imaging System Design and Development. The ST OCR Searchable Text Tools converts your images into searchable text which makes it easier to find and share the history within. Our text recognition solution works both inside and beyond our ST ViewScan Microfilm Scanner Software program. At less than the price of a comparable desktop OCR software package, we provide multiple tools for creating searchable text from images. This includes converting while viewing live microfilm images before scanning, as well as automatically converting any saved images before saving them as a multi-page searchable PDF document. Images previously saved from any scanner or photo image file can also be converted to searchable text. Our ST OCR Searchable Text Tools include an unlimited license so you can convert as many images as you want without additional royalties, subscriptions, or fees. With the ViewScan system you can Collect, View, Organize, Edit, OCR, and Save your selected images to Searchable PDF and other text and graphic formats and share them with the world.
