Processing large volumes of pdf to get text-enabled pdfs

Mon Mar 11, 2013 10:57 am

Hi,

I have the issue that I sometimes have to process large volume of pdf documents, and ocr those in order to obtain the pdf with the text layer.
Does pdf-xchange allow processing of e.g. a whole folder containing pdfs, and produce a version of those pdfs which is ocr'd?

Thanks in advance

Cheers

PS: tried to search fro this but could not find it in the forum, so sorry if the question has already been asked

Hello Y N Batch,

I am afraid that the current OCR tool that we offer can only work with one document at a time. We are currently working on a batch processing tool, but it will not be part of the free Viewer as the current OCR functionality. I expect this batch OCR tool to be available in the next few months after the release of the PDF-X Editor (the product that will succeed the current Viewer by the end of this month):

Kind Regards,

Thanks for the reply.
It's a pity the batch processing will only be available in the next few months as it's a tool I would have liked to use as soon as possible ;-)

Cheers

[quote="Tracker Supp-Stefan"]Hi ynbatch,

This tool or batch number to PDF files in batch processing should be done now but with OCR?

Hello Josef,

Welcome to our forums. Apologies but I am not sure I 100% understand your question. Could you please try to reword it a bit?

Regards,
Stefan

Ich möchte mehrere Pdf Dateien mit OCR bearbeiten. Dies soll aber autumatisch geschehen.
z.B. Im verzeichnis Buchhaltung befinden sich 300 Pdf Dateien mit dem Namen Beleg0001.pdf bis Beleg0300.pdf. Diese Dateien alle einzelln mit Pdf Xchange zu Öffnen, OCR Konvertieren und wieder zu Speichern ist sehr mühsam.

Hello pittlj,

Thanks. Now it is more clear, but I am afraid that the current OCR tool offered in our Viewer/Editor is not intended for batch use. We are considering an OCR plug-in for the Editor that will allow this, but for the moment you need to OCR PDF files one by one.

Regards,
Stefan
