Optical character recognition (OCR) is the mechanical or electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. It is widely used as a form of data entry from printed paper data records, including passport documents, invoices, bank statements, computerized receipts, business cards, mail, printouts of static-data, or any suitable documentation. It is a common method of digitizing printed texts so that it can be electronically edited, searched, stored more compactly, displayed on-line, and used in machine processes such as machine translation, text-to-speech, key data and text mining. OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision.

What's your favorite PDF Editor and why?

PDFelement 6 Pro - I've now been using this PDF editor for several months and amazingly, I've found it's OCR and editing capabilities to consistently outperform the genuine Adobe Acrobat X Pro that I also paid several hundred dollars for and own. I also own a license to PDF-XChange Editor Pro and though I find it great for some things I like doing with my PDF's, like highlighting parts of Invoices I send out to clients, it's capabilities don't come close to the PDFelement product.

I'm curious what PDF editor(s) other community users use? Having pretty much mastered what I like doing to PDF's with the three I own, now I want to have a look at others that folks recommend.  Please reply here and let me know :)

Thanks..
