Topic: Best OCR App for PDF files
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 66377

Does anyone know what the best OCR app is for PDF files? I have PDF Image Only files and want to run an OCR against it to get PDF with Hidden Text. Capture's plug 50-page limit makes it impossible to use. I also don't want to use the standalone Capture due to the serious problems I get when converting PDF to TIFF (Capture doesn't take native PDF files when OCRing - it first converts them to TIFF). I usually use ABBYY Finereader, but it doesn't take PDF as an input.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!
