In converting PDF to Text across many documents using a public source converter I am experiencing that some documents have various errors including
No Spaces/Too Many Spaces Between Text, Some Garbled Text or Whole document is garbled Text,Repeats the first few Letters of some works , Empty Text, or just plain Landscape Issues.

Is there a universal (automated) solution to some of all these issues. Such as playing with spacing variable for No Spaces/Too Many Spaces (but would it affect all documents).

Or is the only solution optical(is there optical freeware out there).. And why is that? Why is garbled text coming out. please help
