  • What are the benefits of using PDF to Text OCR and converting PDF to text?

    PDF to Text OCR conversion can be useful in a number of scenarios. For example, if a user has a PDF file containing text that is un-editable, or a file that contains an image of text (such as scanned documents) they would be unable to easily manipulate or modify the text. A PDF to Text OCR conversion would allow for the text to be converted to a format that can be edited, searched, and displayed in different fonts or styles. Additionally, OCR can be used to help with indexing and searching documents, assisting with the retrieval of useful information that is contained within them.
