An Excellent Free Document Scanner App for Teachers and Students
Adobe Scan is an iPad scanning app with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) functionality that allows you to scan anything you want to PDF. You can turn any type of document into an editable PDF which you can edit and re-use the way you want. Adobe Scan is also a powerful converter that lets you convert different file types to PDFs. The app integrates seamlessly with other services included in Adobe subscription allowing you to do more with your PDFs (e.g. edit, convert to Microsoft Office, fill and sign, and send for tracked signatures). To properly use the app you need to be registered with Adobe cloud.
The three main features provided by Adobe Scan are: Scanning (‘Capture forms, receipts, notes and business cards. You can even scan multi-page documents with a single tap.’), recycling content (‘Free, built-in optical character recognition (OCR) lets you reuse scanned content by creating a high-quality PDF you can work with in Adobe Acrobat Reader.’), and storage (‘Save your scans to Adobe Document Cloud for instant access and sharing. Even lengthy legal documents become manageable, as you search text, highlight key sections, and add notes.’)Watch the video below to learn more about Adobe Scan
