Making your PDF documents searchable is great, but sometimes it can slow things down. One way to speed things up is to scan first and then OCR afterwards. This is referred to as “batch OCR”.
If you have a ScanSnap and a Mac, you can do this using the ABBYY FineReader software that comes with your scanner, and this video shows you how.
Note that this workflow comes from this comment by awesome DocumentSnap reader Telegard, so thanks to him or her for the suggestion.
This video on doing batch OCR after scanning is part of a series of quick videos on paperless tips and topics. View more in the series here.
