Re: OCR Solution

Hi Vlad,
If you're running J2018, have you tried its OCR feature?  Or, the Recognize with Jaws option from the context menu?
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

Dear all,

I need to find a way to transform image pdf files into text. These are
mostly books that have been scanned a while ago, but I haven't had the
time and patience to find a solution. Now I really need to do something
about this, for professional reasons.

I found this Windows 10 app called KNFB Reader, which seems to do
exactly that. However, since this is a rather expensive app, I'd like to
ask those who have already used it a few things if I may:
1. How does this app deal with multi-lingual documents? Is it possible
to choose two or more recognission languages for the same book? Most of
my books are manuals. I am a language teacher and it is very important
that both languages used in a book be accurately detected.
2. Is formatting being retained, at least in part?
3. Are there any alternatives to this application? It seems to be the
only accessible solution, but I might be wrong.

I would be very grateful if anyone could help me with this.

Most sincerely,
