OCR PDF feature is available in the trial version of PDFelement Professional to try before purchase as well.
Please refer to the guide "How to Download and Install OCR" to install it first. PDFelement can detect whether a PDF file is scanned or image-based and make corresponding suggestions to initiate OCR when opening a scanned or image-based PDF as below, in the grey highlighted notice.
To edit or convert the scanned PDF files, perform the following steps:
Since version 6.3.0 of PDFelement Professional, we support the Searchable OCR mode, which allows you to search/select/copy the text.
With OCR, you can easily convert scanned PDF files to editable or searched text. PDFelement also provides “OCR Area” function to convert the selected document area to editable or searched text.
