has extended its portfolio of innovative solutions with Text Recognition, a new plug-in for Adobe® Illustrator® that makes last-minute copy changes to outlined text fast, safe and simple.
The Esko-unique OCR plug-in for Adobe Illustrator helps packaging professionals to produce packaging in an optimal way. It eliminates work-arounds that were cumbersome when even the tiniest of copy changes was required.
Text Recognition is the only OCR tool on the market that converts outlined text in artwork to live, editable text directly in Illustrator. This way the designer is able to make copy changes in just seconds within Illustrator. The Text Recognition plug-in for Adobe Illustrator is available as a part of the Esko DeskPack collection of plug-ins for packaging professionals, or as a standalone product for anyone working with Adobe Illustrator.
The software has a unique Font Recognition function; when a copy change needs to be made, the software compares the character in the artwork to the fonts on the user’s computer, choosing the best matching active font. This eliminates the need to manually evaluate every font and re-type entire paragraphs to find the correct text layout. It works with foreign languages too, even with completely different glyphs like Chinese, Japanese or Korean; and its unique Compare function highlights copy changes in a ‘before and after’ view, reducing the risk of mistakes.
Text Recognition is available on the Esko Store for purchase or as a 30 day trial https://www.esko.com/en/downloads/trials/text-recognition
