    pdf documents search

    pr_coldfusion Level 1
      I have the documents that are scanned and stored in pdf format.
      Most of them are forms.
      I am using the verity tool to index and search the documents.
      My search was working fine for other regular pdf documents.
      But while testing I noticed that the search fails for contents within scanned pdf documents.

      Please help!

      Thanks

          But while testing I noticed that the search fails for contents within
          scanned pdf documents.

          Are the documents just scanned as images or are they run through a OCR
          process to turn the images into text.

          If the former, there is nothing for verity to search, it can not search
          an image. It the latter, it should be working.
