Between PDFelement’s setup wizard and other support options, we found that it was the easiest program to use in our review. Not only does the software have a clean, easy-to-navigate interface, but there is also a user manual in the application. You can download the software on Windows and Mac computers, as well as iOS devices, making it one of the most versatile programs.

During our tests, we found that when we converted paper documents to either word documents or PDF format, the tables, images, symbols and text were consistently accurate. The program recognizes over 23 languages, so it is a good option for companies that do international business. The OCR program retains the original document’s layout, fonts and tables. We did find a few inconsistencies with spacing on the tables, which resulted in a lower accuracy score.

The software does not have image editing tools to fix warped images. You can convert scanned files, digital documents and even pictures from your mobile device. PDFelement integrates with several cloud storage services, Microsoft Office applications, HTML and eBooks. The software features batch OCR so you can convert several documents at once, as well as multipage recognition for your larger projects.

Wondershare has strong customer support. You can access the user manual directly in the optical character recognition software. Also, the product’s website has tutorials and videos, as well as a knowledgebase with frequently asked questions. If you need additional help, you can contact customer support by phone or email.

PDFelement is a high-performing optical character recognition tool. It is both easy to use and highly accurate. You can access the software on several desktop and mobile devices, which makes it a convenient and a good option for companies that need to convert paper documents to an electronic format.
