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.

Subject: easy-to-use and inexpensive program for converting scanned image
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
