PDF to Word ==> Interesting Website

Post by BeaconMarineDon »

Occasionally I'm in the position where I need to extract the text or content from a PDF document. But, I'm not in that position often enough to warrant the purchase of software dedicated to that purpose (Adobe or otherwise). Lots of sites boast of having this capability but most seem shady and very few deliver. All that being said, I stumbled across a site www.onlineocr.net that has worked well for me and may be of use to you.

You just upload the PDF or image to the site and it uses Optical Character Recognition software to extract the text. It's saved me a great deal of time and effort. If you have this need -- take a look at this site PDF to Word. It's free to try and may save you time and aggravation...
