Text Recognition for Adobe® Illustrator® is the only product that converts outlined, vectorized characters into text that can be edited again.
To make text changes in native Adobe® Illustrator® design files you had to have the necessary fonts installed on your computer. To bypass this it was standard practice to convert text to outlines.
As an annoying result the outlined content remained frozen; typing was no longer possible in 'dead text'.
In some industries more than 90% of incoming artwork contains outlined text. A time consuming work-around would make the simplest text change a real challenge.
The Text Recognition plug-in for Illustrator is a new OCR tool that converts outlined copy in artwork to editable text. No more work-arounds. Just Adobe® Illustrator®
Implementing text changes in vectorized artwork is no longer a labor intensive process. With the Text Recognition tool, dead text becomes live text again. Even the tiniest text change is done in the blink of an eye
With the Text Recognition plug-in you easily save 30 minutes per job. Imagine the time you save on a working day, week, month, year! Not to mention the additional projects you can handle.
We regularly receive vectorized files from our customers that need correction. Before, our operator had to find the same font first to correct just one or two words in a text. Now, I use Text Recognition on a daily basis and it saves me 30 minutes per job.
