PDF to Word Converter

Recommended Posts

I'm searching for a pdf to word converter - title explains

 

The problem with the one I'm using now arises when I attempt to convert a pdf of a book which is literally screenshots, or whatever the correct term is, of the books pages. 

 

Is there any way to sidestep this issue? or is there a better converter that has the ability to convert these types of pdf's?

I know adobe has one. My laptop came with it. If you have you just Right Click on the PDF, Click Open With, then with word. 

 

IF you have it, that is how you use it, but if you don't have it, I don't know how to get. 

 

 

EDIT: If you have a book and you are having trouble converting it to a word doc, just PM it to me and I can convert it for ya.

Abbyy is amazing.

I ended up getting this and it works great.

 

It would've been better if I would've had it before I typed all of "Postscript on Societies of Control"... );

I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but you can use Google Drive to easily convert image files into editable text:

 

http://www.thewindowsclub.com/google-drive-convert-image-to-text

 

Basically, you do the following:

 

1. Upload the pdf/image to Google Drive.

2. Click on the file once so that it turns blue.

3. Right click on the file to open up the options menu.

4. Select open with Google Docs. This should automatically convert the image into text that you can copy into a Word document.

 

Hope this helps.

Just use verbatim OCR-- it's pretty effective.

Completely forgot verbatim had this function..
