Scanned Image Conversion via PDF Converter Elite 3

There are many PDF converters that offer basic conversion options, like converting native PDFs into MS Office documents or creating PDFs from these files. Only a small number of software provide an option to convert scanned images to editable formats, such as Word and Excel, and amongst them is the PDF Converter Elite 3.

Now, optical character recognition (OCR) conversion is a very sensitive operation that usually does not result in 100% accurate converted documents. Since image documents are scanned from printed or handwritten documents and the OCR software then needs to match the font with existing ones in its database, it’s not always possible to come up with an exact match. There are other elements in a scanned file that sometimes cannot be detected by the converter, like line breaks, footnotes and bulleted lists, but PCE 3 comes the closest to performing an accurate scanned image conversion.


With the help of this software, users can convert scanned documents that are saved as BMP, JPG or TIFF files into MS Word or Excel. The conversion process is very simple, with only a few steps to follow.
