How to convert scanned images in pdf to text?
I have a pdf of a textbook that is just the scanned images of the pages. Is there some pdf reader out there that while I'm looking through it I can select a part of the image and it will convert and copy the image in that area to text. I hope that makes sense.
Hi and welcome to the site. I've had a brief look, and there are plenty of OCR programs out there. The problem is your need to select part of the image and only convert that. So I searched for "OCR part image" and found this. Now that probably isn't exactly what you want, but if it is out there, you will be more likely to find it by searching...
