Re: easy-to-use and inexpensive program for converting scanned image PDF files into Word or text documents

Thanks so much for all of this valuable information.

I will send this info along to our tech support folks, and hopefully, we'll 
figure out something that works for what I need.

hello tom, this is gary. i have had great success with long pdf documents
being converted by pdf converter professional and it is not that bad as ffar
as price goes I think i was able to get a special on it for either $79 or
$89. Also i have omnipage pro 17 and that  also works  well with pdf files
to be converted to the file formats that you may want as well. it is good
to. it costs $99. i have not had that great time to work with 17 but i had
great success with previous version and so i decided when there was  a great
upgrade price of $99. So take a look at these two solutions. as far as i
know kurzweil will also have a pdf tool to convert documents as well in
version 12 of kurzweil and that  costs $125  as long as you have a copy of
kurzweil 1000, to upgrade as well you can get a demo of version 12 of
kurzweil 1000 to try out. so these  are the suggestions  that   i have tried
in teh past and have worked for me as i am a financial and tax advisor as my
daily job being self employeed. i hope this helps.

I'll give this a try too, although some of the documents I will be getting
will be quite long.

We'll figure this out one way or the other!  (grin)

Thanks!

would PDF2text@xxxxxxxxx take care of this.

Try it by e-mailing your document.  I've found that in the past they haven't
been able to take care of long docs, such as house offers, but can handle
the shorter ones.
