Abstract

This disclosure allows the user to edit/change a hard copy document by defining a word or text string that the system would search for and replace (using OCR technology) during the scanning and/or processing of originals. This results in output that reflects the programmed edits. By offering the user access to this technology at copy programming time, their workflow is made simpler and faster. Rather than following a convoluted scan and save, OCR, edit at workstation, and submit for print workflow, this concept adds a simple find & replace feature to the familiar Copy workflow.
