Convert Non-searchable PDF to Searchable PDF in Java

A PDF file may consist of Text, Image, Attachments, Annotations, Graphs etc elements. In case we have an image file converted to PDF format and we have a requirement to manipulate/extract the text contents from Image PDF, it is not possible in a simple manner. Even Adobe reader cannot provide the feature to extract text contents from Image PDF. In order to accomplish this requirement, we need to perform OCR over image inside PDF file and then extract those contents for further manipulation. In this new release, we have supported the feature to convert non-searchable (Image PDF) to searchable PDF document and it can be accomplish with the help of Google tesseract OCR.

As well as the enhancements and features discussed above, there have been numerous fixes related to recently introduced PDF to DOC conversion, PDF to Excel conversion, PDF to HTML conversion, PDF to PDF/A conversion, XPS to PDF conversion, PDF to TIFF conversion, text replacement, text extraction, rendering PDF files to XPS, creating TOCs in PDF files, and printing PDFs with embedded fonts.
