Topic: PDF to Word?

I am attempting to scan a 300 page typewritten document that I wish to edit. It's easy enough to scan it and I can obviously read it on screen but it's not to move it to a Word document.
I know that I could use OCR but that's painfully slow.
I have tried a number of PDF to Word converters but they create documents that are so full of errors they are not worth using.
I know that it is possible to copy a PDF file to Notepad and from there to Word but even that produces errors.
So the question is:
Is it possible to convert a PDF file to Word and if so using what software?
