The IRISPen Executive 6 optimizes OCR accuracy and speed and even reads wavy and distorted images with its unique line tracking technology. Plus the Small print option provides optimized results when reading small printed text, with a font size smaller than 10 points.
Scan Multiple Lines
The Multiple Lines option is used to scan multiple lines at a time, and is particularly usefull when scanning full excerpts from book, magazines, etc.
Recognizes 128 Languages
The IRISPen scans and recognizes an incredibly vast number of foreign languages including all American and European languages such as Spanish, French, Greek, Turkish, the Cyrillic ("Russian") and even the Baltic languages and Hebrew are also supported.
Barcode Recognition
The IRISPen Executive supports the ability to read all common barcode standards and types, including the 2D barcodes PDF 417 and QR barcode; plus it supports bearer bars drawn around the barcodes. The IRISPen Executive 6 can even recognize the CMC 7 font that is often used on banking documents.
Speech Synthesis
After Scanning, the included software can then read the text aloud to quickly verify the OCR accuracy, or aid in recognition of the spoken language. Speech Synthesis is possible with Portuguese, British English, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, and Russian. The speech synthesis feature is available in the language that was chosen at the installation for speech synthesis.
Scan Images in Grayscale
Logos, signatures, or any small graphics are quickly scanned into your document with the IRISPen express handheld scanner. Furthermore, a Dot Matrix option is available to make the pen read dot matrix symbols (i.e. symbols that consist of isolated, separated dots)
Smart Wizard
Scan text, numbers or small images - quickly and easily - with the intuitive wizard that guides you through the process. The IRISPen wizard offers the quickest and easiest way of defining your settings. It proposes a series of templates with pre-defined settings means for the reading of certain types of data: text, text from columns, numeric tables, etc. These templates can be either used as such, or modified to fit more particular needs. The Smart Wizard also provides an image quality check window, to help ensure that the scanning process has worked properly.
Powerful Image Adjustment
The image adjustment features enable users to optimize the image generated with the pen for the recognition process. These options will be particularly useful if you scan very poor quality, partially damaged or low-contrast documents where the background virtually has the same color as the text.
User Preset Templates & Profiles
Up to 3 (modified) templates can be assigned to a preset button directly accessible from the application window, so when it comes to actually capturing a certain type of data, all you need to do is press the right preset button.
Define Delimiters
With the delimiters you can indicate how the scanned lines must be delimited for reading. For example, how hyphens should be interpreted when occurring at the end of a line.
Keyboard Shortcuts
Easily assign typical or customized keyboard commands to the two buttons on this handheld scanner for quick access to the function you use most. By simply pressing the pen buttons, you will thus be able to execute 5 operations: Null, Enter, Space, Tab, Undo Last Scan.
Unlimited Applications
Whether you are working on a Windows and Mac system with Excel, Word, Emails, Text Editors, you name it - if you can type it in, you can scan it in with the IRISPen.
