    OnlineOCR – Free OCR Service

    Link: Free Online OCR service - convert PDF documents to Word, JPG to Word

    OnlineOCR is a free site where you can convert images, PDF docs and more into editable text or Word files.

    Free Online OCR service allows you to


    text and characters from PDF scanned documents (including multipage files), photographs and digital camera captured images. Service allows users to select 28 languages to recognize multilingual documents.


    OCR results directly to your favorite formats including Adobe PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Rtf, Html and Txt. Converted documents look exactly like the original - tables, columns, bullets and graphics.

    OCRed files online in your secure workspace. Also you can download these files on your PC, edit text and print.
    Maximum file size for the guest user: 1 Mb.

    Registration will give you access to additional features not available to guest users: recognize large images, ZIP archives and multipage PDF, choose recognition languages, convert into editable formats and other settings.
    I have experimented with several PDFs [not particularly challenging ones] and it coped quite well. I was quite impressed and when I can find some I will try PDFs which include special characters to see how it handles them.

    Edit: Other similar [sort of] offerings on the web:

    Link 1: Convert pdf to word - Convert pdf to doc - Convert online pdf to word

    Link 2: PDF2Word Online: Convert PDF to Word (DOC) for Free

    Link 3: PDF to Word Converter; 100% Free!

    Link 5: KoolWire [Convert PDF to Doc by email. Just email a PDF file as an attachment to doc[at]koolwire.com. You will receive a converted Word document with the reply]
