Anyone able to help out converting a PDF consisting of scanned images of text, coupled with photos, to an OCR version which recognises the text for search purposes ? It's a large document thereby ruling out the free options online.

If you have can you email me below.

Don't know if this will work but i use Google, to change word to PDF.
I only use on rate occasions and don't remember where to find in Google.

I know you don't want an online version, but if you get stuck, I use this one all the time which is really effective:

Thanks Paul but the free sites have max file sizes which this one exceeds.
