If you have a scanned PDF file, you can use PDF2Word's OCR option to convert it into a Word document.


  1. Open your PDF file in PDF2Word.

  2. Click the "Convert OCR" button.

  3. Select a folder on your computer to save your document to and click "Save". Note that if you are converting a large document, it can take some time for the OCR engine to view the whole thing.

  4. Once the conversion is complete, you can choose either "Open File" or "Close" on the final dialog.
