Not able to OCR newly scanned Document

Recommended Posts

I have recently scanned a document to edit in pdfelement's, as I have in the past. See attached sample of document.

Normally the program recognizes that the pdf file needs to be OCR'ed to edit. However there is no option to do that with this pdf.

When you look at the pdf, all letters/sentences have box's around them as if it had been OCR'ed, however the boxes contain no text. The original text remains as part of the background picture. There is now no-way to edit this pdf, (that I can see), or to force a OCR.

I have recently changed to a canon printer and this is the first pdf I have tried to edit from its scan.

A separate issue I have when pdfelement ocr's a pdf. Pdfelements also changes some of the background picture to text, making editing a problem. Is there a way to blank out pictures in a pdf so the OCR will not try to OCR where there is no text.
