PDF, as such, does not have a âbuilt inâ OCR. The ability to OCR will be found in other software - such as Abbyy Fine Reader, which we use, daily. PDF is just a document format to hold the finished document in a way which will be read in the same way that it was saved. It used to be just for work going to the printers - so you knew that the final print would be the same as the proof. These days it has taken over from fax as probably being THE way to transmit printed and signed documents.

That's it. For all the other editing out there, there's a quick and easy way to get the same result with far less time and effort. If I need to work on a document at home, I can copy and paste in the entire text into OneNote, and in Word, I can make minor changes in a paragraph on a fly.
