PDF OCR X is a utility designed to help you convert images and PDF files into text that you can access from a wide variety of other devices later on.

The trump card of the app is the fact that it relies on optical character recognition technology to extract all text available within an image. In addition to accurately extracting the text content, the tool can also place it into a TXT file that you can access from both mobile and other devices whenever you need to.

Alternatively, you can specify if you want the app to export the content to a searchable PDF, a format that can provide higher security, reliability and easier share of documents, while preserving the layout, font, graphics and images.

It is necessary to mention that the application supports the most common image formats, meaning PICT, BMP, PNG, JPG, GIF and PDF.

In spite of the fact that it does come with some settings, they can be summarized to selecting the output format (searchable PDF or TXT) and location. The tool also enables you to add additional languages, a feature that can come in handy when you are working with foreign documents and want to extract text with specific characters from them. You can also rename the documents with a user-definable suffix before saving them to the desired location.

It would be nice if the application enabled you to preview the images you are about to process, an option that can be quite useful when you manage documents with similar names. In addition, it would be great if it came with some text editor that allows you to make some modifications if you notice a misspell, for instance.

While it does a thorough job of extracting text from various images, PDF OCR X could use a few more functions that enable you to process files using your own parameters.
