Can you OCR a scanned PDF file even if the quality of the image is imperfect?
You can, but the accuracy of your results will depend on the software that you use. Some tools are equipped to deal with skewed pages and blurred letters, while others will misread characters in a poor quality PDF file. Professional tools like CVISION’s Maestro Recognition Server have de-skewing and de-speckling features that ensure high accuracy for virtually all documents.
