Hi,


I use Foxit PDF reader and I was looking for a free way to convert the document from PDF format to Word format. Does anyone know of anything like this?

Hi, leedownen123.

Check out this link to a search I did on download.com for "convert PDF to Word". Some of these are freeware and some are not.

Alternatively, if you have a scanner with OCR software, you can scan the document into OCR and maybe, if the OCR software is good enough, it will convert it fairly accurately.

Good luck!

Yes I also searched that on Download.com and got the same results...but I need to get an important document converted to a word or text document ASAP, so I don't have time to test a couple of applications to see which one works easy and efficiently. I posted here looking for a response from someone who had a specific program in mind and had had a good experience with it. Would you happen to have anything in mind for something like that?

At my office we use Nuance (formerly Scansoft) Paperport. It's a commercial product, but does a pretty good job of converting from one file type to another. I've found it to be a resource hog.

Thank you for your help. I found one called Solid Converter PDF that works quite nicely.
