How can I perform OCR with Core API for Existing PDF file and save it as PDF/A-1B?

An example application would help me.

We have PDF-XChange PRO and PDF-XChange PRO SDK licenses.

With kind regards

Hello baumunk,

The OCR operation is only available via the Editor SDK.

Cheers,
Alex

Hello Alex,

Ok. Then one more question.
But is it possible to save a finished PDF with OCR recognition (with OCR_MakeSearchable it is possible in the step before) as PDF/A-1B without destroying OCR recognition?

Thanks
Ernest Baumunk

Hello baumunk,

Why not. The OCR recognition is just an invisible text content items - so I don't see any problems here.

Cheers,
Alex
