Google Docs riconosce il testo dei PDF in 34 lingue

Qualche mese fa Google Docs ha introdotto il riconoscimento ottico dei caratteri (OCR). Ora aggiunge questa funzionalità per altre 29 lingue, arrivando ad un totale di 34.

Last June, we introduced the ability to upload documents into Google Docs using Optical Character Recognition (OCR). OCR analyzes images and PDF files, typically produced by a scanner (or the camera of a mobile phone), extracts text and some formatting and allows you to edit the document in Google Docs.

We’ve gotten a lot of feedback on this feature, and one of the biggest requests was to add support for additional languages. Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve added support for 29 additional character sets, including those used in most European languages, Russian, Chinese Simplified and some other Asian languages. See the upload page for the full list.

Per trasformare quindi un file PDF in testo modificabile occorre caricare il documento su Google Docs selezionando l’opzione “Converti testo da file PDF…” e scegliere la lingua dell’originale.
