Cisdem OCRWizard for Mac is a smart application that helps you convert scanned PDFs and image files into editable documents. The utility has the ability to extract the content of PDF and image files in order to reuse it in other projects. The output profiles include a wide array of supported formats that range from more or less popular types of documents to most of the common image formats.

The program has a neat and user-friendly interface that lets you manage the application with ease. All functions can be conveniently enabled from the main window, as there aren't any out-of-sight options to reveal in hidden menus. Loading the image-based files you wish to process is done easily, either by opening a browsing window from within the app or by dragging and dropping files into the program. The utility offers a generous preview of the imported files. You have the ability to browse the pages of multi-page documents and preview selected pages, so you can mark text-, table-, and image-based paragraphs with sharp accuracy. Before enabling the character recognition operation, it is vital to select the language of the document you are about to process. You will be pleased to notice that the list of supported languages is quite comprehensive, including over 40 languages. For a better character recognition, you can enhance the quality of your scanned or image-based file. Therefore, the app has the capacity to adjust the brightness, the sharpness, the contrast, and the saturation of poor-quality PDFs. In addition, it allows you to correct the page positioning by enabling up to 90-degree rotations. Finally, when all settings are determined, you just need to select the output format out of a comprehensive list of presets. You can either convert the entire document or a custom range of pages.

Cisdem OCRWizard for Mac is a highly reliable character recognition app that turns scanned PDFs and other image files with text into editable documents. The wide range of supported languages, the extensive list of output profiles, the text enhancement capacity, and the partial conversion ability make this app a great converter of scanned and image-based documents.
