Need to update a paper document? Don’t retype it or bother with tedious OCR steps. Instead, turn it into a PDF you can edit right away using custom fonts that look just like your printout.
Scan any paper document to PDF or open a scanned image. Acrobat will automatically convert image to text and PDF to text, and take care of the optical character recognition tasks so you don’t have to.
When Acrobat opens your scan for editing, it automatically generates a custom font. When you add or edit text within the PDF document, it will look just like the type in your original.
Once your printed document is scanned and converted, it's easy to extract text to cut and paste into another application or export to Microsoft Office to edit as a text file.
When you need to preserve the exact look and feel of documents for legal purposes — and don’t want editing capabilities — save them as smart PDFs that include text you can search and copy.
