PDFScanner has been created with one simple task in mind: scanning and archiving documents as quick and easy as possible, and making them findable with Spotlight search. There are many applications for OS X that allow scanning of images or text. Most of them are however complex, slow or not really suited for scanning documents or letters.

When performing OCR, PDFScanner adds the recognized text directly to the scanned image as an invisible layer, so the text can be selected and copied just like in other PDF files.


  • Support for all scanners that are supported by the Mac OS X more...
