Is a PDF Searchable if OCR'd?


Recommended Posts

The docs say pdf search is a premium feature

However my experience is that ocr'd pdfs are search-able for all account levels.

Indeed, for many, many years the documentation has mistakenly said that PDFs are searchable for Premium and Business members. We've recommended before that they change the wording to indicate that PDFs get OCR'd for Premium and Business members. As DT noted, PDFs can be searched at any subscription level.

One interesting thing about Evernote's OCR (still supplied by ABBYY?) is that it can be done in two languages simultaneously. That's pretty cool, and generally not available in other software, so it is sometimes a good idea to let Evernote do the OCR instead. If a document is OCR'd when you upload it, Evernote will use that version, and will not OCR it, so you have to make that decision before uploading.
