How to Convert PDF to TXT Format

Home > PDF Converting Tips > Convert PDF to TXT

Does your PDF have some important text which you want to send another person who does not have the PDF reader? The best solution is to convert PDF to TXT format which will only convert the text present in the PDF file. However, the images presented in the PDF file will be removed from the file. On the other hand, if the images consist of the text, you can use the Optical Character Recognition to convert the PDF file into text. Here’re the simple steps that you can follow.
