Xerox Corp has announced TextBridge 2.0 for Windows, a new version of its personal computer-based optical character recognition software that adds an application server, an optical character recognition driver, and other new and enhanced features while retaining the original $100 price tag. TextBridge works with facsimile and scanning software to recognise text within a document, and to convert the information into word processing, desktop publishing or other computer files. The software uses neural networking and other artificial intelligence techniques to learn as it reads, employing information from clean sections of text to help interpret difficult-to-read areas. The lexifier capability is able to recognise lexical classes, or known patterns of information, such as postcodes, and day-month-year configurations. The new application server enables the optical character recognition software to be launched directly from other Windows applications. Multiple Zone Capability features a preview window, supporting up to 127 zones, that enables users to view images on screen to assess image quality. The multiple tagged file format file processing feature is designed to enable users to process large batches of multiple tagged file format files as a single document, and to handle multiple-page multiple tagged file format files received from fax applications. Wang Laboratories Inc is incorporating TextBridge in its Open/image document management software, and Delrina Corp into all its upcoming facsimile software. Resumix Inc is employing the optical character recognition software in its curriculum vitae software, enabling organisations to bring scanned CVs together into a single, searchable application. TextBridge 2.0 for Windows is out now; upgrades from TextBridge 1.0 are $50.
