How OCR Function Makes Work Easier

OCR function enables efficient and professional workflows, allowing users to convert piles of hardcopy documents into searchable and editable digital formats. Businesses can streamline document management, enhance retrieval speed, and reduce physical storage space. 


For those in the finance industry, OCR automates data extraction from invoices, receipts, and financial statements, streamlining expense tracking, facilitating audit processes, and enhancing financial data analysis. 



As for image-based PDFs, such as scanned reports or brochures, OCR allows converting them into editable formats like Word, Excel, or PPT. If your company's outdated product manuals need an update, then the OCR tool is undoubtedly the best choice. By scanning the hardcopy documents and utilizing the OCR tool, you can quickly transform them into editable PDFs, thereby efficiently updating the information.


In short, OCR tools empower businesses with advanced text recognition capabilities, fueling productivity, accuracy, and effective document management practices.



Convert PDF to Word with Flowing Text

PDF documents identify and fix the position of each text box, making them a highly stable document format. However, when you need to make extensive modifications to the overall content of the document, fixed-position text boxes can become a stumbling block. They do not automatically wrap or paginate, so when you add content to one text box, it's highly likely to overlap with the content of the next text box, creating a messy situation. That why PDF Reader Pro launched flowing text mode during the conversation.


When you convert a PDF to Word using PDF Reader Pro, we provide you with two layout options to choose from: Flowing Text and Maintain Page Layout. In Flowing Text mode, you'll get an original Word document that allows for unrestricted editing and adaptive text. Flowing text dynamically adjusts to the page size and boundaries, automatically paginating or wrapping as needed. No more rigidly confined text boxes. This flexibility and convenience empower you to freely edit and format your Word document with ease.

  1. Download PDF Reader Pro and open a PDF file;

  2. Click Converter on the toolbar -> To Word;

  3. In the Layout Settings section, tick Retain Flowing Text;

  4. Click Convert.
