    If you look onlline and type pdf2doc and look about using search there are programmes or in some events places were you can send the document and they will convert it and send it back you, hope that helps.

    Use Abbyy Reader. It works with allot of scanners, even if the manifacture says its not an OCR scanner. Its the software that makes it OCR.

    My college that I work at has some scanner software for the blind to make text pages from books to text so they can read it on the computer. There is an easier option.

    Yep that is the one to go for, just teasted it, converted a 500kb pdf in roughly 5 minutes. All done online, emails you the document. Accuracy is somewhere around 98% on looking at it, keeps the fonts (and apparently the design too).

    It's good stuff
