5.1.2 (See all)

PDF Converter OCR offers an easy and convenient solution to convert PDF files into editable documents. The array of output formats is comprehensive – namely, you are able to save your PDFs as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Rich Text, plain text, CSV, and image files. You will definitely appreciate the OCR function, which allows you to extract the content of scanned PDFs.

The program comes with a neat and user-friendly interface that makes the conversion process easy to carry out. All you need to do is import PDF documents, select a page range if necessary, and output to a desired format. It is good to know that batch conversion is allowed, so that you can load multiple PDFs at once and convert them all in one session.

Some target formats support additional settings. For instance, with XLSX and CSV files, tables can be detected either by borders or data structures. You may preserve only table areas or the entire content, and the original pagination can be retrieved as different sheets or displayed in one sheet. You can convert PDFs into the most popular image formats, such as PNG, JPEG, GIF, BMP, and TIFF, while adjusting the output resolution and picture quality. The PDF to TXT conversion doesn't provide advanced options – yet, consecutive numbers can be assigned to the resulting text file to keep a trace of the original page numbering.

All output formats, except for image files, support content recognition of scanned PDFs by enabling the OCR function. However, this feature works properly only with the supported languages. Unfortunately, if your text is written in a different language than those supported or if it contains letters with diacritics, there are great chances that odd characters will show up on the resulting documents. Another valuable feature refers to the ability to convert specific pages, either by range or randomly.

PDF Converter OCR provides you with an easy method to convert PDFs into documents and images that allow further editing. The wide range of supported output files and the ability to select specific pages from a large file make it a good alternative for a PDF conversion.
