Test converting pdf-files to txt-files: no OCR-function in ...

about Online Convert and Free File Converter, OCR Terminal Jun 2011

Test converting pdf-files to txt-files: no OCR-function in difference to Free File Converter
I converted 2 pdf-documents to doc-documents:
(A) pdf with markable and searchable text, and (B) a scanned pdf-file with text not markable or searchable.
pdf-document (A) has been converted to a normal doc-document with text with very good quality, pdf-document (B) has been converted to a doc-document with an page-filling image for each page, in the same way as Free File Converter (1) did it with the 2 examined documents. Then I exported a pdf-file with good readable text to a png-file and to a gif-file with good readable text.
The converting of these 2 grafic-files to a txt-file resulted in the error:
"There has been an error converting your file. Please take a look at our FAQ."
Free File Converter can also OCR-convert png-, pdf- and gif-files to txt-files:
Then I converted these 2 grafical-files to a txt-file using Free File Converter (1). The result was a OCR-converted text-file in all 2 cases. However, if the font is small, the OCR-recognition of Free File Converter is not very good.
The best free OCR-converter is "OCR Terminal"(2):
But is has 3 disadvantages: Max. file size: 10MB, only 20 files free per month, registration necessary.
