I have a scanned PDF file (Images) and I want to read the contents of this file.
I used “Read PDF With OCR” but the result is not good.

Do you have a solution for this problem (see PJ).

thank you in advance

if we have a licensed version of adobe reader then we can conver that pdf file to a doc file
–then we can use our WORD activities like WORD APPLICATION SCOPE and READ TEXT activity which will give us exact details

Cheers @Ala_Abouda

thank you for your reply, but the problem in the PDF file we have only images (text on image)

no worries it will get read when converted

So with Adobe Reader pro, we can read text in image ?

no on converting it to a doc file and then reading it with WORD ACTIVITIES here in our uipath would do the trick

the problem my input is a PDF file with scanned documents (Images) and I have to read the contents. so if I understood correctly it is impossible to recover the contents of a pdf file (the text is an image).

yah its absolutely possible
when we convert that scanned pdf to doc file (not docx) using EXPORT PDF option in a licensed version of pdf reader then by using word activities we can read the data in that pdf
with small changes in alignment alone (not with data)
i have used this earlier in one of my process
