Topic: OCR Coverage Limitations in Acrobat 6.0 Pro (Via Email), 1 Attachments

We have very clean paper documents that we are scanning and then saving to PDF in Acrobat 6.0 Professional and Standard. Ultimately, we end using the Paper Capture feature built into Acrobat to OCR the documents. We only recently noticed that Acrobat was not performing the OCR on anything within about 1/2 a inch of the bottom of the page. These documents routinely have text that runs right down to the very last printable portion of the page. Is this a known limitation with the Acrobat OCR engine. Other PDF and OCR products pick up the text at the bottom all day long. We have a sizeable investment in Acrobat 6 Standard and Pro and really want to make this work.

I have attached an example of one of our documents that Paper Capture will miss the text at the bottom right hand corner of the page.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
