[access-uk] Re: Can anyone suggest the best program for converting .pdf files in to text while maintaining any associated drawings and photographs?

Well Alexander last time, a few days ago I was discussing this and Ibrahim kindly suggested Abbeyy Fine Reader. I do not have the link at present but you can download a trial version. That said it will not be enough to meet your requirements as the trial only allows convertion of 50 pages. Perhaps others on the list who have the software will translate it for you.

Hi all,

As a result of some voluntary work I'm doing for a committee
linked to Birmingham City Council, I have been sent a .pdf
file which contains photographs and drawings as well as
text.

can anyone suggest a program that could convert this 104
page document from .pdf into a more screen-reader friendly
document without stripping out the drawings and photographs?

Please note that I have already tried running the file
through K1000 but it didn't retain the drawings and
photographs.
