A PDF needs to be searched for text but it is just an image so it's not aware of the characters. I've been trying to do OCR to the PDF but am not skilled in the programs required. I tried Foxit Reader but the latest version I can't find the option for OCR? Yes, I did Google search but all the instructions are for a totally different UI.
I also tried Omnipage 18 but it just hangs and I couldn't find clear instructions for it either. The PDF is over 800 pages long so it's quite big. Not all of it's text, so I would like to preserve things such as tables and pictures that aren't supposed to be converted to text. I don't care what the output format is, may as well be PDF.
In short: where do I click FoxIt Reader to do OCR?
