    Using Windows 10 and Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro

    When I attempt to run OCR on a PDF, I get the following error:

    I found instructions on this web page that says to save it as a TIF, which saves each page as a separate TIF. Then open the TIFs one at a time, run OCR and resave each page as a PDF. Then they can all be recombined into a single-file, multi-page PDF.

    The files were originally web pages that I saved during placing an order (for verification). These orders can run as few as two pages and as many as about twenty so you can see how the method above can be very time-consuming.

    Is there a better/faster way to do this?

    Is there possibly something that can be done when creating the initial PDFs that might save work on the OCR end?

    Most browsers can save a web page with graphics and everything. And you can open them again and read it as if you were online. If all you want it to read it again then that's what I would do. However if you want to extract the document text contents, you can then just highlight the whole thing with your mouse and press CTRL-C to copy and CTRL-V to paste it into Notepad. Or what else do you wish to do by OCR'ing it?
