Fantastic OCR

After pulling my hair out trying to find an app that does a good job of OCR on the Mac, I was blown away by the OCR capabilities of PDF Converter. I had created a test bed of some scanned pages that I ran through to test the OCR capabilities of different apps (including some with challenging pages). This app was the ONLY one that gave me great OCR results. All the big names apps gave me what I consider unsatisfactory OCR results (such as sometimes introducing spaces within a word). While the app is not “cheap”, it is priced below the major competition.

In my tests, it did a great job of converting my samples into Word (DOCX) and also creating PDFs that have a text layer so the text may be searched and/or copied. Given the huge number of scanned pages I have to deal with, I’m now confident that this app will be up to the challenge!

As I wish all developers would do, they provide (via their website) a downloadable trial app with a limitation on # of pages that can be processed.

Very useful!

Most of the time I don't need a PDF converter, but when I do it's important that it can both reliably "read" and format the document into a useable format. So far this app has done a great job for me. Its ability to format documents very close (sometimes exactly) to the original in a Word or Pages format is first rate. I've seen the app do this with fairly complicated layouts. At other times I need a simple text conversion and, of course, it does that very well. I found the app intuitive and easy to use.

Most impressive is the number of formats it will convert to, making it a very useful tool.

So so

I bought this primarily to convert existing PDF documents (PowerPoint presentations that were saved as PDF) back into PowerPoint format. The trial version is very limited, so it was difficult to tell if the product was going to be able to do what I wanted. Unfortunately, I ended up buying the software, but now I wish I could get my money back. It tries to do a decent job, but most of the time I get a bunch of blank pages and a lot of slides that look nothing like the original PDF. I’m pretty disappointed in the product’s ability to convert PDF files into PPTX format. Maybe it’s good for other things when dealing with PDF documents, but it is certainly not masterful at converting PDF documents to PPTX format.
