Output: A text file is generated for each image and is stored in the same directory (or equivalent directory structure) as the original image. The file name is the image name with a “.txt” (ASCII, Formatted ASCII output), “.pdf” (Portable Document Format), “.pro” (“*.PRO” output), “.rtf” (RTF output), or “xml” extension. (Other formats are available – contact us for additional details).
