I currently have AppleScript which runs on a folder and is taking up my machine whilst it's working. I wish to be able to do it without UI interference.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

If you have Acrobat professional, these links may help:

  1. Scan setup & workflow
  2. Article about Applescript to monitor folder and do acrobat ocr - has links to script downloads.

If you are willing to abandon acrobat as a solution and cobble together your own, you may find this question useful.

Thanks Dave. Those are the scripts that I was referring to, when I mentioned using AppleScript. The issue is that they all invoke Acrobat, and work by automating the visual side of it. I don't want Acrobat to ever start - and merely be able to do 'its thing' by being invoked from CLI. –  romant Oct 5 '09 at 1:08
    
Then if you can leave applescript and acrobat behind, there are several posts closely related to this one that are about performing ocr on pdf files. I would check them out. –  DaveParillo Oct 5 '09 at 7:09
