(Archived) Evernote/Doxie OCR





I just bought a Doxie Go, and my plan is to import a bunch of OCR'd PDFs into Evernote.  Here is my issue:
When I send PDFs directly from the Doxie app into Evernote, the text is not OCR'd (I can't select the text, search it, etc.).  However, if I save my scans with OCR to my desktop and THEN import the file into Evernote, the PDF is searchable, text is selectable, etc.
So, my question is: can I export scans directly from the Doxie app as OCR'd PDFs?  Or must I continue to first save the files with OCR to my desktop and then drag/drop those files into Evernote?  
FYI:  I am NOT an Evernote premium user.  I was hoping that I'd be able to continue to not pay for Evernote and just use the OCR from Doxie.
Thanks so much!

Doxie can't scan and OCR at the same time.  You need Adobe or some similar product to carry out that function exactly as you do now.  I don't know whether Doxie can automatically OCR when scanning,  but that's stunningly slow even on my S1500.  I also scan to folder,  retitle and tidy up my files there,  then batch OCR and file everything.
