New features in OmniPage 18
If you are upgrading from version 17, you benefit from the following innovations. Click the
links to for more information.
Start Page: When OmniPage opens it presents clear options to open or scan documents,
open OmniPage Project Documents and provides pre-programmed workflows to take
your documents from one format to another in one easy step.
eDiscovery Assistant for searchable PDF: This process is specially designed to create
Searchable PDF files from image-only PDF files or files that may already contain some
text elements or text pages without altering or applying an OCR process to existing text.
All text-based elements in a PDF remain untouched including document metadata,
annotations, mark-up, stamps and more. The process can run automatically or with
interaction for zoning or proofing. See “eDiscovery Assistant for searchable PDF” on
Connect to the Cloud: Download input files from web storage sites and return
recognition results there. OmniPage provides native integration with Evernote and
Dropbox. In addition, the included Nuance Cloud Connector application provides
access to a number of cloud services including Microsoft Live SkyDrive, GoogleDocs,
Box.net, FTP sites, and many more. The added benefit of the Nuance Cloud Connector
is its ability to integrate directly with Microsoft Windows providing easy drag-and-drop
access directly to cloud services. The Nuance Cloud Connector is also upgradeable to a
more feature rich version of the product called Gladinet Cloud Desktop Pro. This
enhanced version adds additional functionality for using cloud services for automatic
backup and file synchronization. See “Input from the Cloud” on page 30 and “Other
export targets” on page 73.
New image enhancement (SET) tools: The algorithms for removing speckles and dots
from page images for increased word accuracy are improved, with a choice of
despeckling methods (Normal, Halftone, Salt & Pepper). Auto-crop pages to have
margins detected and reduced; the punch hole remover and border tools produce clean
page borders without scanning shadows and marginal notes. When whiteboard content is
captured by digital camera, the text and diagrams can be enhanced for maximum
readability. See “Image Enhancement Tools” on page 37
