OCR For Search

Solid PDF Tools allows you to create and apply a searchable text layer to your scanned documents using OCR (Optical Character Recognition). This OCR layer makes your PDF documents easy to index and archive so that you can quickly find what you need, when you need it.

Automatically Apply OCR

When scanning documents to PDF using Solid PDF Tools you can automatically apply a searchable text layer. Scanners with automatic document feeders are supported by Solid PDF Tools and can handle anything from one page to multiple pages depending on your needs.

Apply OCR to Existing Scanned PDF documents
Existing scanned PDF documents can be converted in bulk to searchable PDF/A documents.

Searching the PDF
You can use Solid PDF Tools or applications such as Adobe Reader to search for text in PDF documents. Other applications can index the documents, allowing you to search for text among many archived PDF documents
