Caere Corporation, the maker of OCR tool OmniPage Pro, has developed a new application that allows users to convert paper documents into auto-generated HTML files.
OmniPage Web, which is due to be released April 5, incorporates the OCR engine used in OmniPage Pro with "Logical Structure Recognition" (LSR) -- a technology that "recognises the outline, hierarchy and structural elements of scanned pages", claims Caere in a statement.
LSR examines the language and formatting of a document - text and images - and creates an outline of the document including headings, tables and graphics. E-mail and Web addresses are automatically hyperlinked, and the document is split into individual HTML pages according to its original structure, the company says.
The package includes 20 predefined themes to enhance the style of HTML pages created, and can also automatically generate a navigational panel and a table of contents for documents.
OmniPage Web supports Dynamic HTML including Cascading Style Sheets and frames.
OmniPage Web is priced at $999.
