OCRMax is an all-in-one tool that can handle character variations, text skew, proportional fonts and variable string lengths, while providing high read rates, reduced setup time, and faster deployment. In addition to the new feature, the In-Sight Explorer 4.8 software release includes enhancements for 2-D code reading, process feedback, and communications.
