Use Adobe Acrobat Export PDF to convert PDF files into editable Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel files.
Adobe Acrobat PDF Pack performs OCR on PDF files that contain images, vector art, hidden text, or a combination of these elements. (For example, Adobe Acrobat PDF Pack performs OCR on PDF files created from scanned documents.) Adobe Acrobat PDF Pack also performs OCR on the text that it can't interpret because the text was encoded incorrectly in the source application.
OCR is the conversion of images of text (scanned text) into editable characters so that you can search, correct, and copy the text.
Do the following on the same pop-up window:
- Select the desired file format from the Convert To drop-down list.
- Select the language of the document you're exporting from the Document Language drop-down list.
Note: Adobe Acrobat PDF Pack does not retain the language setting from session to session. Therefore, make sure that you select the appropriate language each time you convert a document with OCR.
The selected PDF file is uploaded to the server and the content is exported to the desired format. Click the Download icon to save the file on your computer or device.
