In the second part of our conversation with Joe Kissell about Take Control of Your Paperless Office, 4th edition, Joe talks about how Apple's Live Text feature allows dynamic text interaction within images, and sheds some light on the intricacies of software recommendations for going paperless. He guides us through the shifting landscape of digital document management, security concerns tied to adopting cloud-based OCR and document management services, and paves the way for a more secure transition to the paperless world.
