Adobe has cut the price of its PC-based Acrobat Capture software.
The package is a combination of document imaging, optical character recognition (OCR) and page decomposition.
Acrobat Capture will recognise and preserve the exact formatting of a scanned item; text, graphics and page layout remain intact. Standard OCR will recognise scanned-in text but is unable to convert other images on the same page.
Paper-based information can then be converted into Adobe Portable Document Format files, a standard file format used on World Wide Web corporate networks and on CD-Rom.
The typical price that Adobe suggest people will now pay for Acrobat Capture is u570, is a third of the product's original selling price.
The company has said the price cut should open distribution channels of this application to small and medium-sized businesses.
