As well as supporting a wide range of video, audio and graphics files. Axle AI also supports PDF files. If the file is viewed, users will see the individual pages within a PDF file. As different pages are selected, the contents of the page is shown. A new feature which has recently been added to Axel is character recognition or OCR for the contents of the PDF files.

Here we can see the new OCR tab under the PDF Pro’s pages. By selecting different pages in the document, the text from those pages will be shown. Users can search whole documents for individual words or phrases using the simple filter tool. In this example, filtering using the word installing shows a single page. Updating the filter to installation shows additional pages.

All of the data gathered by the OCR tools is searchable using the standard actual search tools. Entering the search term in the simple search window will show the files which are found.
