Able2Extract version 8.0, Standard Edition ("Able2Extract v.8.0") and Able2Extract Professional have all the same features, save for one primary difference - Able2Extract Professional has the ability to convert scanned PDF documents using OCR technology.
Should you encounter a message in a document while using Able2Extract v.8.0 that states, "This page has NO Textual Information", the document you have opened is either a scanned document or a PDF created by software that has incorporated an "image" in its creation. Unfortunately, Able2Extract v.8.0 does not have the feature that converts scanned PDF documents or documents that contain text within images.
In order to convert these types of images, the document must be analyzed optically on a character-by-character basis. This can be done using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. Due to high demand for this technology, Investintech has created a Professional version of Able2Extract that can support scanned documents and images.
This article refers to Able2Extract and Able2Extract Professional.
