Those who don’t know about OCR, it is the abbreviated form of Optical Character Recognition, which is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text.
PDF OCR from PDFZilla does a similar thing. According to the publisher.
PDF OCR is based on OCR technology to convert scanned PDF paper books and documents into editable electronic text files fast and easily. PDF OCR has a build-in text editor which allows you to edit ocr result text without MS Word. PDF OCR also supports batch mode to OCR all pages of pdf file to text at a time. PDF OCR has a Scanned Image To PDF Converter, which means you can create your own scanned PDF books.
The good part of PDF OCR is that it is not limited to English but can support more than 10 languages like German, French, Spanish, Italian and many. The output is good but I can’t get any output from the “Scanned Image To PDF Converter”. I kept waiting for 15 minutes until did a forced stop. It also consumed ~40Mb of RAM during the conversion, but the process is rather fast. You can read an exclusive review of PDF OCR from Softpedia.
