How do I convert a scanned PDF to an editable PDF?

Mike Richards provided one answer. If you are going to do a lot of OCR conversion, that’s a good solution. There are also free readers — scan the web. In a pinch, you can print it and re-scan it with the searchable PDF option set to true. Kurzweil has an OCR (not cheap) but is probably the best commercial solution.

If you want to help, please email the webmaster or forum moderator. If the problem is a bad link, please give it a little more time, and send a new link. If you find a problem with a site, please post it in the relevant forum. If you don’t want to post an image, but a problem of any kind, please email the webmaster.
