What is the difference between "Plain text" and "Preserve original formatting" recognition modes?

If you need to extract information from the scan instantly and privately  — select Plain Text mode to recognize text on-device without connecting to the Internet. Offline recognition converts text to TXT format and supports 63 languages.

To keep the formatting of the captured text (footnotes, tables, etc.), you may use Preserve original formatting mode. The recognition is proceeded on the server (online) and supports 193 languages and 12 formats (Word, PDF, Excel, etc.) for the resulting file. Both formats support up to three recognition languages for a single document.
