Developed as part of the “Infty” project, InftyReader is a commercial desktop application available for Microsoft Windows that allows digitizing scientific documents (including mathematical formulas). More specifically, it can recognize text content and math expressions either from scanned images or PDF documents by performing an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) process with a neural network trained with this specific purpose in mind. In addition to this, when recognizing PDF documents, InftyReader can leverage a PDF document parser to make the final result more accurate.

InftyReader can export recognized documents in many different formats, including LaTeX, HTML and XHTML, DoCX (Microsoft Word), ePub 3, and PDF documents created so that screen reader can announce the LaTeX equivalent for each rendered formula; finally, InftyReader can export documents using IML, the same document format used internally by InftyEditor.
