IE Vs Adobe Reader for PDF

We would like to automate a process where it is grabbing datas like Name, Number, Date from PDF and enters in to another application. Can anyone suggest me on working with IE and Adobe reader for PDF?

Exported PDF format : I am able to use Read PDF text activity to read the entire pdf and I am able to get the values using string manipulations. Read PDF Text is working in the background. So IE/Adobe Reader is not required.

Scanned PDF: Can anyone please suggest ?

Thanks in Advance.

A scanned PDF will need to be run through OCR to be readable as text.
It looks as though there are several OCR options available.

Thanks for the quick response. OCR is working as expected in Adobe Reader. Is it possible to extract values when we open the scanned PDF in Internet Explorer?

Thanks in Advance.
