There is no API to the OCR functionality in Acrobat. You would need to look into the Adobe Capture SDK.
Hi, thanks for your reply.
I'm intending to batch process the PDFs with OCR and save them back as PDFs. When I do this and then attempt to save as plain text, the file created is empty? The text is searchable and can be selected and copied in acrobat.
Why doesn't acrobat save the searchable/selectable text into the text file?
It might be that Acrobat excludes invisible objects when it saves
Thanks for your reply.
I solved this earlier by setting the output style of OCR to Searchable Image (Compact). It now extracts the text when saving :¬)
