Hi Blake,

Cant you export pdf to word?
Transcribing just seems like the manually long way around.

Hi Steve,

That’s our normal approach to a PDF -> Word conversion, however these are scanned hard copies and it would appear the quality is not high enough for a reliable OCR conversion. We’ve experimented with almost every different tool and service available and none have delivered a result that doesn’t require significant rewriting, hence why we’re heading down this path.

Thanks,
Blake.
