OmniPage is a document scanning program used to convert printed documents into electronic files. Scanned documents can be exported to several different file formats, including Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect, Adobe Acrobat, and Amazon Kindle formats. OmniPage can also be used for converting non-editable files, such as closed PDFs, into editable documents.

Nuance’s proprietary OCR technology provides accurate recognition of scanned document text. For example, OmniPage can match text characters from over 120 languages with over 99% accuracy. The program matches character properties, such as the font, size, style (e.g. bold or italic), and the document background color. Users can also import digital photos taken of paper documents and accurately translate them into editable documents. After your documents have been scanned and converted you can make adjustments to them before exporting.

OmniPage supports a wide range of input and output file formats including:

  • Input File Types: .PDF, .XPS, .JPG, .TIF, .MAX, and other common image file formats
  • Output File Types: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, InfoPath, Corel WordPerfect, .PDF, .CSV, .RTF, and other formats

OmniPage is primarily used in professional office environments because it helps professionals save time and money by converting physical documents to electronic copies. It is also a useful program for home users who have a large amount of paper documents that they wish to quickly digitize for electronic storage and quick access. If you are looking for an easy way to transfer your paper receipts and other documents, OmniPage is a great solution.
