OCR Without Extracting Data

So we are working on a project where we don’t need the robot to extract any data. All we need to do is convert PDFs to readable text to allow humans to search that text as needed. Is there a good way with UiPath to just have it convert the pdf to a readable text, save it, and move on?



To read PDF files use - read PDF Text and read PDF with OCR( if PDF contains any image) activities and it will give you output as string. Then use Write Text File activity to write into any notepad file.

If you are looking at converting an image pdf to readable pdf, you could use Abbyy fine reader which will directly convert to the readable PDF. but abbyy also comes with a pricing. However, you can try out with the trial version of Abbyy Fine Reader.
