If you want to convert a document to PDF, you may choose to scan it, but this method has its drawbacks. The documents that scanners produce are not searchable. Thankfully, you can use ORPALIS PDF OCR to make PDF documents searchable in a few simple steps. The program uses advanced optical character recognition and layout analysis.


We installed the software smoothly as the program did not try to install any bloatware onto our system. When we launched the program, it displayed a screen informing us about the limitations of the free version and gave us the option to buy the professional version or keep using that one.

The main program window was simple and divided into two main parts. The upper part featured sections for selecting the source, destination, required number of threads, OCR language and button for starting the conversion process. The lower part had tabs for displaying status, warnings, errors and logs respectively.

By default, the program selected the source folder from where we wanted to convert document to PDF that we could search, but the Settings menu allowed us to configure it to select specific files instead.

When it completed the conversion, it displayed a pop-up message showing the exact duration it had taken. The information also appeared on the lower part of the program window while the Logs tab displayed information about the file converted.


When you convert a document to PDF using a scanner, you'll find it challenging to search it. Fortunately, ORPALIS PDF OCR converts any PDF document to a searchable PDF format. The program works fast, but the actual duration it takes depends on the number of pages it processes. It supports multi-threading to process multiple pages and documents at the same time.
