ABBYY is a reliable OCR tool for recognizing text in inaccessible images or PDFs.

PDFsam Basic might not let you make direct edits or additions to PDFs, but it does include seven very handy utilities for your basic everyday needs.

that like the other programs of this type, there are always errors in the recognition of symbols, for which you must dedicate time to correct paragraph by paragraph and corroborate with the original document.

I dislike how some of the actions are way too confusing too do even though it's easy to find it on the dash board.
