    "Works perfectly with clean PDF's"

    February 4, 2013  |   By janene33


    I use this program all the time to convert PDF's to Word and Excel. I've used it with Windows XP Pro and Windows 7, Office 2k3 and 2k7. If the document is straight and is a clean PDF (as in very readable), it works perfectly.


    If the PDF is a crooked scanned document, if it's a fax, or otherwise hard-to-read document, the OCR is not accurate.

    Hi janene33, Able2Extract Pro's OCR can correct grainy text and improve the text quality during conversion, but, as you mentioned, reconstructing the text correctly depends on how clear or legible the text is. We're constantly tweaking the OCR feature with each and every build, though. So keep checking in with the latest Pro version for improved scanned conversions. Thanks for pointing that out!
