PDF OCR X Community Edition is a simple drag-and-drop utility that converts your single-page PDFs and images into text documents or searchable PDF files. It uses advanced OCR (optical character recognition) technology to extract the text of the PDF even if that text is contained in an image. This is particularly useful for dealing with PDFs that were created via a Scan-to-PDF function in a scanner or photo copier.

The Community Edition supports single-page PDFs and Images. For multi-page PDFs and batch conversion features, you can upgrade to the Enterprise Edition.

Includes support for over 60 languages including English, German, Spanish, French, Chinese, Japanese, and many others.


Release Notes:

Fixed issue with blank output in some PDFs with transparent backgrounds.

Great free 1-page OCR conversion tool! - Very pleased. I compared to another tool OCR I have, and "PDF OCR X ce" did WAY better on the screen shot text sample than my other utility. It was as reasonable a result as the pro product I used years ago. They thoughfully include an option to comment on results and include the image you fed it, so you can help them improve the product. I hope someday they add a little AI to guess corrections based on spelling, grammar and context. Perhaps in the paid version? Remember, garbage in, garbage out. The cleaner, higher res scan you provide, the better chance of accurancy. PDFs come in many flavors, so if this product can’t read yours, try scanning a print out, or print-to-PDF to change the PDF format.

don’t bother - I have found this OCR tool to have a high error rate. I could probably enter the document faster, than if I use this OCR program and then fix all the errors.

Just what I was looking for! - This did a great job creating live text from .PNG files that contained multiple languages. Thank you for including the extra languages! The accuracy looks almost spot on and will save time in having to retype all of these. Ran on 2017 iMac running Catalina 10.15.3
