Great App, simple to use, and quite accurate!
I plan to use this for extracting text from pages I have highlighted in my school books. I have a mac with OS 10.6.8 and an HP all in one scanner C4480.
I scanned the book page with 400 dpi and saved as a pdf image file. I launched Text Extractor and opened the file and the interface was simple. It extracted the text even though it was highlighted with orange flourescent sharpie with few missing characters. I copied and pasted the text into a word doc. It was easy and effective! Need to play around with my scanner settings to get the best image quality, but I have high hopes. Thanks for making my student work so much easier!
Very nice app!
Love the clean look and the interface is very user friendly. It is missing a couple of features that you would find on nearly any other app these days, the first is Drag and Drop to open files, and and the second is the option to close a file when you’re done with it. Overall very happy with this app though.
Slow, innacurate and can’t save PDF as searchable PDF
The product is slow.
Slow would be okay if it were more accurate. It claims to be 90+% accurate. It wasn’t for the PDFs I tried.
And finally, most people don’t just scan a PDF and the OCR with the expectation of extracting a few works here or there. They would like the PDF to be searchable. This functionality is either missing or too hard to find. Either way, it should support saving searchable PDFs.
