OmniPage

Description: An optical character recognition program. It can operate with a scanner to scan a document, convert the image to text and then save in a variety of formats. It does a reasonable job of preserving the fonts and styles of the original document (if that is what you want) or can save as plain text. Latest versions have the ability to scan pdf documents to extract the text in them. This is valuable if the pdf documents are actually images not text files.
