When there is not enough time to take notes in class, or when finding some useful articles or quotes in magazines or books, you could take pictures to save them into your mobile. Despite all this, you still need to copy their content manually when you are studying. Nowadays, there are more diversified learning approaches for students. A trend has been formed that OCR becomes an aid to students' studies.
What is OCR technology? OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology can easily scan and extract the text from document images, then convert them into editable and searchable files. Now, let me take Docs Matter as an example to explain how OCR technology help students improve the efficiency of learning. Docs Matter, developed with OCR technology, is popular among millions of users worldwide.
Now, most of teachers use Power Point to make course material and share it with students so that students can get the references instead of having to retyping them during class. However, for some teachers those who would like to teach students with the traditional teaching methods, they seldom use PPT in class. Students have to take notes while listening to the teacher carefully. Sometimes, students may fail in both listening to their teacher and taking notes. Docs Matter can help you resolve this problem.
You could download and install Docs Matter into your mobile from Google Play. With Docs Matter, you do not need to worry about leaving out some important information when teachers speak fast during the lecture. You just need to take pictures of the course material on the blackboard and save it into your mobile phone rather than writing down it instantly so that you can focus on teacher explanations.
What's more, Docs Matter is able to easily scan and transform the course support on the pictures you take into the editable texts. It can also export texts as PDF, Word and TXT format. Students can share the recognition results with their friends through E-mail, Bluetooth and so on.
Docs Matter comes in handy in many aspects of your study and your life. For example, you may meet some important reference and you want to keep it while you are studying in the library. It will take a few minutes or even much longer if you copy it manually. You could capture pictures of the reference. Then Docs Matter can help you extract the contents within the images for you. Then you can edit and save the texts.
In order to improve the accuracy rate of character recognition results, you have to keep the document flatten, and avoid reflections and shadows appearing on it. You should also keep your hands steady during the capturing to avoid blurry images. The accuracy rate of recognition of Docs Matter does not reach 100%, so users need to correct the uncertain recognition results manually. The average time for recognition of a document is less than 6 seconds, which is faster than retyping.
Comparing with manually typing the information, Docs Matter can easily convert paper documents to electronic ones’ for you. It can support 12 languages: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish, Swedish and Finnish.
