Free Online OCR Service To Convert Scanned PDF And Images To Editable Text

September 29, 2014

There are numerous PDF converters available that claim to convert PDF files to Microsoft Word or Excel documents. What typically occurs is that the converter turns the PDF into an image and then inserts the image into the Word or Excel document. The end result is that you still cannot edit the contents or text in the inserted file. 

SOLUTION: Go to Online OCR , sign up for the FREE account, upload your PDF and the magic will happen (the file will actually be converted to a Word or Excel document that you can work with). Online OCR is an online optical character resolution service that does a fine job of extracting text from PDF and image files. Online OCR recently saved me from re-typing a four page PDF file where I needed to edit the text in the PDF. I uploaded the PDF to Online OCR and the service did an excellent job of converting the file to a readable and editable Microsoft Word file format.

Online OCR

OnlineOCR.net is a free web-based Optical Character Recognition software (OCR) that allows you to convert scanned PDF documents (including multipage files), faxes, photographs or digital camera captured images into editable and searchable electronic documents including Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Rtf, Html and Txt.

OnlineOCR.net also allows and supports:

  • automatic image rotation
  • full-page deskew on images
  • creation black and white images from color and grayscale image file
  • retain non-text color regions for reinsertion into the output document

The Poor Man’s Microsoft Office

June 3, 2013

This article is sort of a repeat from a previous article, A FREE Alternative to Microsoft Office And Especially Microsoft Word, that highlighted the poor man’s version of Microsoft Office, called Kingsoft Office Suite Free 2012Note:  From what I am reading, the 2013 version will be available soon.

Kingsoft Office Suite

Kingsoft Office Suite Free 2012 is perhaps the most versatile free office suite, which includes free word processor, spreadsheet program and presentation maker. These three programs help you deal with office tasks with ease:

Writer – Efficient word processor;
Presentation – Multimedia presentations creator;
Spreadsheets – Powerful tool for data processing and data analysis

Although it is a free suite, Kingsoft Office comes with many innovative features, including a paragraph adjustment tool, and multiple tabbed feature. It also has Office to PDF converter, automatic spell checking and word count features. In this latest version, new features such as watermark in document, and converting PowerPoint to Word documents are also supported.

I have been so overly impressed with the compatibility of Kingsoft with Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint that I wanted to let you know (again) that you can save a considerable amount of money by using Kingsoft instead of Microsoft Office. I often see folks, at home, buying a computer then throwing in the Microsoft Office Suite which really ramps up the cost of the entire package. Kingsoft is FREE, Microsoft Office is not! For the home based user, Kingsoft will get the job done.

If you are a student or business person where Microsoft Office is the main working software product, then I can see possibly buying Microsoft Office for your home computer; otherwise, don’t waste your money, give Kingsoft a try.

There is also an Android version available, as well.
