Comments on PDF OCR 4.8

Thank you for voting!
Please add a comment explaining the reason behind your vote.

I already have 4.7 of this from 2019. I found the changelog for 4.8 which only says "Compatible with latest Windows 11". I'm not using Windows 11 so if that's the only change in 3 years, I'll stick with 4.7. I found it odd the About option in the menu doesn't list the version. Too bad there are so few comments on these giveaways nowadays.

Please make sure you read the description of this software and understand its purpose and limitations. Downloaded, decompressed and loaded with no issues. Added serial and I used it on a PDF document. The OCR worked very well, almost flawlessly. However, it did not keep the formatting. As such, this program will not keep the document intact and "permit" you to edit it as some high-end software can do. I didn't read the details before my test. To my knowledge, there are plenty of PDF programs out there but very, very, very few will convert it to an edible document. So, while this program works well, it will not fit my particular needs or desires. I would not take points away from it other than the fact that it doesn't retain the formatting, photos, etc.

If you find that you have issue with the registration after restarting the program, please run the program as Administrator: click on the icon by right mouse button, select "Run As Administrator" then activate.

"PDF OCR is compatible with French, Italian, German, Spanish and other popular languages. " from your website.
My language is Greek.
Where is the full list of supported languages please?
Even if not updated list, there should be something so that we decide to try or not, before blindly installing.

I went to the home page of the program and spend about 30 minutes ,
trying to locate the full list of the supported languages without success .

I've just installed the program without a problem .
Just a "heads-up" , it installs directly to C:/.
Personally , I don't like that .
So , I created a folder inside Program Files (PDF OCR 4.8__23-11-2022__GAOTD)
and installed the program there .
The program started without a problem .
Well , just a small problem , the GUI is not fully visible .
The tabs are just grey , but if you place the mouse on them , the title appears .
I had an old PDF to use and used the option "Other Languages" , in the hope that
the program will recognize the Greek language .
Unfortunately the result was not good ... at all .
I don't have another PDF file to try .
Maybe you will have better results with your PDF files .

Marek, I just installed this program, and the Languages you're asking for are: English, French, German, Fraktur (Old German), Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Basque, and Other Languages.. You could try Other Languages.. I saw that it works well with Italian.

How to Convert Scanned PDF to Text
Adobe Systems introduced an uneditable and protected type of a document in the early 1990s for Windows. These documents earned their name of Portable Document Format and gained worldwide praise for their ability to retain the format of the documents.

PDF documents are the most trusted way of sending and sharing information over a network. But they have a terrible reputation of not being editable in any way. However, many tools and programs are available these days for complete or partial editing of a PDF file.

Portable documents are particularly important for sharing sensitive information in the business world. Users can use either text or scanned PDF files for sending information. Text PDF files are quite easy to share and share, but most users get annoyed with large and unmanageable scanned files.
