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

I have version 10 of the K1000.

But, the problem is that if I eventually do upgrade to Windows 7, which is 
the plan, that will become unusable.  I hate to have my employer purchase 
the upgrade to version 12 of K1000, knowing that I really wouldn't use it 
that much, except to convert PDF scanned image files.   That's why I'm 
looking for a program that is specifically designed to do the document 
conversions.

Thanks!

I don't know what version of Kerzweil you have but mine, v11, will import
PDF documents.

If you get the chance to try it out, let me know.

You may get to it before I do, because I have a number of more immediate
work-related projects to get to here over the next few days.

Thanks!

Tom,

I just saw one on this web page, while looking for the Talking dictionary.
Haven't tried it but it sounds pretty inexpensive.

PDF files into Word or text documents


Hi, folks.

I am a bit hesitant to bring this up again, since I'm partly responsible for
the earlier thread on this topic, but I am looking for an easy-to-use and
inexpensive program for converting scanned image PDF files into Microsoft
Word or text files.

I need to be able to do this at work, since I am getting a fair number of
PDF scanned image documents that I need to deal with.

Some on the list here have recommended omnipage, and processtext, but I am
reluctant to spend the money on them without trying some sort of a demo
first.  But, no demo seems to be available for either program.

I do have an old version of the Kurzweil K1000 software, but am getting away
from it, since most of the documents I use at work are electronically sent,
rather than in hard copy.

Just for the record, I am currently using Windows XP and Jaws 11.

I may be upgrading to Windows 7 when I purchase a new home PC, so want
whatever software I get to work with that system as well if possible.

Thanks for all of your help and patience.

Tom Behler in Colorado
