"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, PaperPort can do it. Here's an EE article that explains how:
PaperPort - How To Create Searchable PDF Files

Section (3) in that article shows how to use the PaperPort Image Printer to "print" to a PDF Searchable Image file and set it to automatically invoke the built-in OmniPage OCR when you print. Regards, Joe
