FileConvert OCR Software in a Nutshell

FileConvert is the best software for anyone wondering how to convert PDF to OCR. FileConvert's solutions allow you to OCR PDF files and PDF documents. In other words, FileConvert will convert scanned, digital documents through OCR (optical character recognition) into text PDF files that you can search. Recognize text means taking digital images of text and exposing them as real computer text. While PDF files are not normally editable, meaning that you can't edit PDF text in a scanned PDF, you can copy the text into Word to edit the language, something that's particularly helpful for business documents. PDF OCR as performed in FileConvert is fully compatible with Adobe Acrobat, and is also compatible with most Western European languages, not just English.
