: I'm not sure if I'm very clear 😕. Here's my use case: I have an app on my phone that scans documents to PDFs but it doesn't do any OCR. I also have a bunch of digital documents for which I don't have a paper version anymore. I'd like to OCR these documents to make them searchable and allow copy/paste.
@kettcar64 @mike Thanks for your suggestion, but I don’t feel safe uploading my pdf to an online service I don’t have control over. Plus there are some confidential documents I’m not allowed to upload anywhere among the ones I need to process 😊
I admit that it’s a really simple and easy solution though, and it might be sufficient for some!
