It makes it possible for you to convert both scanned and normal PDFs, as well as your images into editable and text-formatted files
Cisdem PDFConverterOCR is a straightforward application that aims to provide you with the necessary tools to convert any PDF document or image file with text to a wide array of editable formats.
Basically, with the help of Cisdem PDFConverterOCR, you can easily convert both normal and scanned PDF documents into editable and text-formatted files. What’s more, with the help of the four selection tools found on the app’s top toolbar, you can manually select which parts of your documents should be exported as text, images, or tables.
Effortlessly convert PDFs into editable and text-formatted file formats
Straight off the bat, it must be pointed out that the best part about this application is, fortunately, its OCR feature. With the help of its powerful optical character recognition system, the app makes it possible for you to convert PDFs to common Microsoft Office, iWork, ePub, HTML, and the most popular image file formats, among others.
Another worth-mentioning feature is the fact that Cisdem PDFConverterOCR’s optical recognition system has the ability to scan and recognize the text from your PDFs or images for 49 languages, so chances that your text will be converted with strange characters or symbols are quite low.
An all-round good utility for the Mac, but not without faults
While PDFConvertorOCR’s text recognition system works undoubtedly well, it isn’t what you would call fast. In fact, the app’s OCR system is so slow that it feels like it's actually slowing everything else down as well. One thing’s for sure, you will have to get your head around the fact that some great deal of time will be spent waiting.
All in all, while not the fastest and clearly not the most stylish application out there, eventually, Cisdem PDFConverterOCR will get the job done and could prove to be a very useful tool in office related situations or for home use when you need to turn scanned documents or photographs into searchable and editable text-based files.
