Go to any search engine, find a site that does this, verify the authenticity and start editing.
Organizations regularly need to move files from one format to another. They prepare newsletters, contracts, press releases, advertisements, manuals, commercial offers, invoices or any document printed on paper, notebooks, address books, other documents you name it. Therefore, there is a constant requirement to convert documents from one format to another.
Why image formats and PDF files?
When you scan a document through a scanner that you save in TIFF format, another image format is also called JPEG, which is a storage format that stores data in the form of images. The basic idea behind these formats was to reduce the size of the images. The reason for the compression of the images was that they took up less space. The smaller file size makes it easy for the user to send documents. The downside, however, is that the original quality is lost when the user unpacks TIFF/JPEG formats, and when converted to Word, these documents often have text recognition errors.
The PDF format or portable document refers to a computer application that stores content in an unedited format. It is manufactured by Adobe Systems. This format has undergone a number of changes to present the latest version, which also supports high quality images or graphics. PDF files protect the contents of a document through their security features, legally recognized as legal electronic documents, although the flip side of THE PDF files is that they are not easy to edit.
How do I convert PDF/TIFF/JPEG files into DOC/RTF/TXT formats?
JPEG files have certain limitations on image quality. This format is also less secure than a PDF. The PDF file keeps the image quality intact. The PDF file is smaller than JPEG. This allows you to transfer PDF files even if they can’t be edited. Thus, if newsletters, contracts, press releases, advertisements, manuals, commercial offers, etc. are to be updated into a PDF, they must first be converted into a document, RTF or edited text file. There are many OCR tools and applications available that can be converted, but often difficult to use.
Make no mistake, no OCR on this planet guarantees 100% correct conversion anytime, there will be errors and you will have to deal with some very important documents.
However, the good news is that you can now find a number of conversion processes on the Internet, some even with manual support to help their users. Google and you’ll find one that will do it for you. Make sure you choose the right site and check its authenticity before you pay your first dollar. Try them on before you buy, it would be nice.
This way you make sure you get 100% correct conversion online.
