How to Convert Scanned PDF Files on Mac

There are two types of PDF documents – those created from Office files, images, ,text, etc. to an Acrobat like PDF printer and those created by scanning physical paper like pages of a book, legal documents, etc, this kind of PDF file is often referred to OCR PDF.

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) is a visual recognition process that turns printed or written text into an electronic character-based file. A document that is scanned and converted into a PDF document provides the basis for which character recognition software may interpret each character image on the PDF and assign it an electronic character-based file that can then be entered into an editable format, such as a Text or Word document.

Most of PDF conversion software on the market can’t deal with ORC PDF documents. Let’s say it is hard to find software to convert scanned PDFs to editable document.
