I have been trying to get OCR PDF lyrics to .txt for my PA4X. I go to internet and print lyrics, then scan them in my Brothers laser multi machine. The problem is the software is old and the text OCR does not work in my newer computers. I tried downloading current drivers, but it says "not enough Memory"(44MB). I downloaded trial software that couldn't read the PDF scan to convert it.

The simplest thing to do is to use PDF in my Tablet, but want to try out my new KB feature of accepting text lyrics.

I find this site works well, PDF Convert just select the text option when converting the PDF.

Hope this helps

Thank you Bill

I went to the free trial and they want to take control of my email. I am not sure how prudent that is. Viewing is one thing,but managing is quite another. Maybe I don't understand what they want to do.

Hi Bernie

1. In the left hand box choose the format you wish the PDF to be converted to.
2. Click the button to upload a PDF document, and choose the PDF file you wish to convert.
3. Once the file has been uploaded and converted, a Download Button will appear, which you just click on and save to your computer.

It is all done completely online, so no email address or contact details are required.

Hope this helps

Bill
