The Reasons Why Nitro OCR Keeps Crashing

Like every major PDF converter, Nitro PDF Pro OCR also enables the user to make an image editable and searchable. However, there have been many instances reported on the OCR functionality crashing by customers across the globe. There have been quite an amount of research into this area and three reasons were identified to be the major cause for this crash in Nitro PDF OCR.

Nitro OCR

Reason 1: When the language in which the content is written is not recognized by the Nitro Pro or it involves a large quantity of symbols, then there is a possibility of a crash or an illegible format of the converted document. Reason 2: Scanning image quality is another major reason for the OCR to not work to its optimal level. The text needs to be clearer and sharp for the OCR to work properly and to provide you with an optimal output. Without a clear text or sharper outline, the image that you will receive as output will either be garbled or the OCR may crash in the process. Reason 3: A major reason that has been identified for the crash of OCR in Nitro Pro OCR is its inability to handle larger documents. When the document size is larger, then the OCR seem to simply crash not being able to handle the volume.
