If I scan something legibly written in all caps, do any of your products offer a good chance of converting it to text?

Our PDF-Xchange Viewer will OCR and create a text layer that may be used to search a page or copy the text and paste into another application - but at this time will not yet allow you to edit the text - this is coming later this spring.
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.
The OCR functionality is designed for printed font recognition, although there is a chance it could recognize letters hand-written in extremely careful form. I'll leave that up to you to test for yourself, and you can do so for free with the PDF X-Change Viewer, but there are no promises here since there is no explicit support for handwriting recognition.
