  1. The OCR function and scanned book pages

  2. The OCR function and scanned book pages

    Hi everyone, brand new to the forum so please excuse me if I inadvertently overstep any guidelines. Not realising PDF Element existed, I have been badly bitten by buying another 'OCR your scanned PDF' software that claimed to take a page of a scanned book (with no protection), and create an RTF or word file from it. Testing it on a single page created a few random characters apparently thrown across the page, but nothing meaningful, so I am already out a hundred dollars for no result. I have some scanned PDF's of some rare Regimental memoirs from the First World War and wish to convert them into an RTF or Word document. Will PDF E be able to do that effectively please? As OCR is not included in the trial version the last thing I want to do is spend another amount of money to find out it won't do the job.I've enclosed a sample page so that you can give me an objective answer. If it works, I'll hit the buy button straight away! Thank you. Untitled 2.pdf
