Advanced OCR Free - Free & No Acrobat Needed
IntroductionPDF documents can be created in a variety of ways. PDFs that are generated from an electronic source - such as a Word document, a computer generated report, or spreadsheet data - have an internal structure that can be read and interpreted. PDF documents can also be created through the process of scanning a document into electronic format. What a scanned document represents is really just a "picture" of the words contained within that document. In order to convert a scanned document into an editable format, OCR software is required to analyze the “image” of each character and match it to an electronic character-based file - that's what Advanced OCR Free is made for.
Advanced OCR Free is completely freeware to extract the text from image PDF and it will not try to install any malicious components to your computer. You can use it either personally or commercially for free. No hidden cost, no registration, no pop-up ads & no restriction of any kind.
Advanced OCR Free provides access to the text content in image PDF documents without requiring any Adobe product and it produces documents compatible with all Adobe Acrobat Reader Versions and above.
