Setting up Cloud and On-Premises OCR

Optical character recognition (OCR) is the process of extracting the textual content of a scanned image or PDF file and converting it into something that can be processed by a computer.

If you’re using Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central online, your default OCR method is Continia Cloud OCR, which means that no additional configuration is required.

However, if you’re using Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Business Central on-premises, you can choose to use either on-premises OCR or Continia Cloud OCR. For more information, see Configuring Cloud OCR and Configuring On-Premises OCR.
