PDF OCR X

Version 3.0.34

Convert PDFs into text documents.

PDF OCR X overview

PDF OCR X is a simple drag-and-drop utility that converts your PDFs into text or searchable PDF documents. It uses advanced OCR (optical character recognition) technology to extract the text of the PDF even if that text is contained in an image. This is particularly useful for dealing with PDFs that were created via a Scan-to-PDF function in a scanner or photocopier. Supports over 60 languages including English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Basque, Vietnamese, and Italian currently. The OCR engine is based on Tesseract.

Note: The free community edition is limited to PDFs of 1 page or less. The Enterprise version ($29.99) has no limit on the size of the PDF.

Own both Readiris and Abby fine reader, both cannot process German Fraktur, Abby charges a lot of money extra for a special Fraktur version. This app did a great job and more over the accuracy was above i expected. I used the free version, original document was 600dpi tiff file for each page, so no problem with the free version single page limit. Every page imported, recognized and exported to txt, hardly errors with Fraktur. Software is very straightforward.

Restricting the free version to edit only one page of the document makes this application useless for me.

Not very often I need OCR. I had 4 docs in small font that I needed to convert. I scanned to pdf, dropped them into the app and they all gave a highly workable text file even in low res. Does what it says and does it well. Why spend money on an app especially if its only used once in a blue moon?

Client sent me a scan of a bio to add to a civic website. Couldn't use my Acrobat Pro (not displaying files). Went looking for a free Mac alternative. Downloaded and opened this. It asked me to tell it what file to ocr. I did. It ocred with no further fuss. Did a very nice job. This will be my OCR app going forward (unless problems rear). Review evaluates simple uses.

This app saved my evening. Simple download and I easily installed an extra language with one click. Drag and drop. Worked fast an very accurate (more than 95% of over 1000 words) on a single page scanned PDF with 4 colums and Dutch and Italian Mixed! Tnx. Remember, results depend on your source.

This is crap. Try to use a language other than English - making lot of mistakes. I think that probably the majority of free online OCR works better. I chose the first result from Google: www.onlineocr.net - there was not one wrong letter.

Tried it on a very simple document in Spanish. The recognition was so bad, it would be faster to retype it from scratch than make all the corrections.

From the Note in the above description: "The free community edition is limited to PDFs of 1 page or less." Nice one, Dev, nice one. You can't have less than a one-page PDF. It's like trying to get "one DVD or less" into your slot.

PDF OCR X requires the installation of a potentially dangerous, security hole ridden version of Java. I'd steer clear of it if you can and use one of the many alternatives.

It does exactly what it says it does, does it well and without problems. You do need to have a good quality document to start with, but this is the same with all OCR software I have used.

I was in a hurry to get 2 scanned sheets converted to text and PDF OCR X helped me out. Both files were converted in less than 30 secs. Thank you for this awesome program! Easily 5/5!

Although this product was not what I needed at the time, it was very easy to use and understand. The customer service from Steve Hannah from this company was stellar!! I definitely will watch for their products.
