For OCR Capabilities
You can scan your book or paper on any scanner available.
After you scan you can go to one of the public PCs on our floor and open your document in Adobe Acrobat DC
**Note: You can request Adobe on your office PC by putting in a ticket on the campus Knowledgebase website: support.newpaltz.edu
To create an OCR capable document in Adobe Acrobat Pro please follow the instructions below:
• Open the scanned PDF file in Acrobat.
• Choose Tools > Edit PDF or click Edit PDF in the menu on the right of the screen. Acrobat automatically applies OCR to your document and converts it to a fully editable copy of your PDF.
• Click the text element or picture you want to edit and start typing. New text matches the look of the original fonts in your scanned image. You can add links, add text, add watermarks and more with the ribbon across the top of the page.
• When finished choose File > Save As and type a new name for your editable document to save as a new document or click Edit PDF in the right hand menu and click Back to Document to save the changes directly to the current document.
