John, Abby FineReader (about £80) has a specific option to convert PDF files
to Word in it.  The OCR software converts the image into text, just as
something like Kurzweil or OpenBook does - but without the need to use a
scanner.

Maybe Richard, but an image is an image and haven't found any way other than
rescanning to get around this yet. However, if it works, then please do let
the list know as it is a constant pain for me when trying to read pdf
articles for my PhD.
 
Cheers.

John, I think that Abbyy FineReader would do the image to text conversion,
as it's an OCR programme.

Hi Richard,
 
I don't think you will be able to convert an image into a Word document. For
this to happen, even with the Pro version of Adobe Acrobat X - which I have
- the file would need to be a text file. It will merely create an image file
in the Word document. However, if you have some other means of doing this,
then please accept my apologies.
 
John.

Hi Mike,
 
If the file has been scanned as an image, then I don't know of anything that
will actually convert it. JAWS 13 will read the first page of a scanned
image, but it cannot be saved and converted and you would need to scan each
page and read it - quite a labour intensive process. The only option I can
think of is to print the pages and scan in as an accessible document rather
than an image.
 
Cheers.
 
John.

Hello,
 
I have a Pdf file, a book, and it is as an image scan, or viewed as a blank
document by JFW.
 
I need to convert it, but Kurzweil will not handle a document of its size,
62000 Kb.
 
Any suggestions please?
 
Kindest,
 
Mike
