If a staff member asks you to scan something and turn it into an OCR, all you have to do is open up the PDF file in Adobe Acrobat:

  1. If you haven't already, install Adobe Acrobat  from Self Service .
  2. Then, Open the PDF with Adobe Acrobat , and click on Edit PDF.

  3. When you see all the text in boxes, go to File -> Export to -> Microsoft Word -> Word Document and that will create a separate file that you can edit.

  4. Open up the Microsoft Word  document that you have created and do any editing that you might need to before printing or sending it back to the staff member that requested it.


If you experience any issues with this process, please contact the Tech Centre.
