Wondershare PDFelement is one of the best PDF management utility software I have used till date, the addiction of the award-winning optical character recognition (OCR) plugin made it a complete PDF workshop for all PDF needs.

No doubt, one should be so confident when dealing with a software company of this repute, we had no doubt when installing the PDF element software as we have had many successes with their products in the past.

Our focus today is on the Wondershare PDFelement software and the OCR Utility plugin integration. These two combination will make life at home and office so easy for you; from PDF conversion, PDF editing to protecting PDF documents, removing protection and adding comments to PDF files, Wondershare PDFelement lets you do PDF editing like a pro.

What we didn’t like

  • On one or two occasions, we scanned a printed office document (.docx) to PDF and converted to Word (with the OCR technology turned on) without a perfect result. The layout of the letter was scattered and the fonts’ format altered.
  • We had to download a larger setup file for the OCR plugin integration. Would have been better if both were bundled as a single solution.

After Integrating the OCR plugin

wondershare OCRThe product was just a good PDF utility software until we added the optical character recognition (OCR) plugin that turned it into a beast on the loose.

We could almost do all premium level editing of any PDF document with it. At this point we wished the Wondershare OCR plugin was sold together with the Wondershare PDFelement software as a single solution. The OCR technology added to it made it a complete software solution for all PDF X editing needs.
