Converts Project Gutenberg™ ebooks Flawlessly!

I used it to convert the Project Gutenberg™ ebook "The Person and Work of The Holy Spirit" by
Author: R. A. Torrey" to text and it was fast and pretty accurate and all the chapters came out in order.

Now i can listen to the whole book in Text edit by selecting speak instead of page by page in Preview.

Thank you sooo much!
May you be blessed exceedingly by The Creator of all the galaxies and all the stars in them,
Christ Jesus!

BTW: On a side bar - - This is a surprisingly good read for being such an old book.
I'm quite impressed by this writer. I have my Chinese Friend, J. Ouyang, to thank for pointing me to this book.
What a blessing she and this developer Seasky Software, has been to us.
Try this program. It may work for you at least with pdf ebooks.
(It also reduced the size of the file by about 20%)

App is great for documents

Note some PDF's are encoded in such a way that there is no text. I have used this on several PDF's are were documents sent to me. In my case I want to extract numbers and tables of numbers to put into a spreadsheet or database. This program works flawlessly for that. Certainly the price is right.

Works as advertised

It worked fine, converted hundreds of PDF text documents to plain text in an instant.
My guess is those who said it didn't work didn't use PDF text documents but actual images, perhaps scanned documents. OCR is out of scope of this small app.
