Pdf To Searchable PDF mantaining original format

Hello,

it’s possible to convert an raster pdf in searchable pdf maintaining the original format.

Usually an searchable pdf must be in 2 layers (one text layer with the extracted text from ocr and the top layer with the raster image of original format). http://searchable-pdf.com/content.php?lang=en&c=61

If not, it’s possible to integrate this feature in the future releases?

Hi,

Thank you for your inquiry.

This is to update you that Aspose.OCR API does not support searchable PDF. However, you can use a combination of Aspose.OCR for .NET and Aspose.PDF for .NET for this purpose. Aspose.OCR for .NET can be used to extract text from an image and Aspose.PDF for .NET can be used to insert image and extracted text (as selectable or selectable text) in the output PDF.

Furthermore, we already have the requested feature on our road map. We have now linked your post with the appropriate ticket (OCRNET-422) from our database so that you could be notified automatically once the required feature is available for public use.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as ) have been fixed in this Aspose.Words for JasperReports 18.3 update.
