Like any other organization, small businesses are constrained by the amount of time at their disposal. While document management systems can help manage files better, it helps if they have certain key features that help save your time too. Background text extraction is one such feature that does not need your personal presence while performing its tasks.
What is Background Text Extraction?
In the earlier versions of Sohodox, whenever a document was added to Sohodox, the Text Extraction/OCR for the document was performed at the time of adding the document. But now this process will be performed in the background. This means adding multiple files to Sohodox (even hundreds of them at a time!) will be much faster than before. This is because now you will not need to wait to add the next file until the Text Extraction/OCR has been completed for the current file.
The text extraction only happens on the machine on which Sohodox is installed in server mode (a single user installation of Sohodox is always installed in server mode). Also, since text extraction now happens in the background, the process continues even when you close Sohodox!
