Text Recognition (Experimental Research & Development)

Here is the text recognition workflow for the tax industry I have been experimenting with. I'm still collaborating with Parallels and a few other developers to further streamline the process because I'm currently using about 10 different things between hardware and software/OS.

    Hey @Ben_T please let me know how it feels and feedback. It might be a little buggy because a lot is going on behind the scenes but I know over time as Apple, Microsoft, Parallels, and Canopy all work together, then it should get better over time.

    Sure, I'll give you feedback when I try it out. I run an Apple only practice, so I love to see Apple tech making inroads to PC-centric service providers.
