Q: Can I send PDFs or scanned documents?

A: Text can be extracted from PDFs if documents are sent in that format. OCR can be applied against scanned printed documents, but that needs to be done before the case is submitted to the PLATOCODE system. We would need to discuss this with you. Scanned handwritten documents can not be reliably read by any current OCR solutions these documents are not usually submitted to the PLATOCODE System for coding - although they can still be displayed in the PLATOCODE tools when being reviewed by a coder.
