Manuals and OCR

xienwolf , September 08 2011

I just found this site while searching for a manual I nearly gave up on locating. Now that I have it I would like to quickly search through the file for data on the parts I want to replace, but the file author didn't perform OCR (optical character recognition) on his scans, and EBAMAN (quite reasonably) password locks the PDFs, so I cannot run OCR on it myself.

I could print the entire thing to file and create a new PDF out of the images generated I suppose, but it would be nice if OCR was run on all manuals before they were uploaded.
