Although Adobe Acrobat was the leader in its class for years, the original version became outdated as newer technologies came about. However, Adobe came back with a bang when it introduced Acrobat Document Cloud, more commonly known as Acrobat DC.
The new Acrobat DC comes in two versions, namely, Acrobat Standard DC and Acrobat Professional DC, and as is the case with all Adobe software nowadays, these apps are only available on a monthly subscription basis and not as a once-off purchase. This means that, rather than forking out a huge lumpsum to purchase the app, you can have access to it by paying smaller monthly subscription fees. Another advantage of the monthly subscription is that if any updates are made to the program, it will be available to you right away.
It should come as no surprise that Acrobat Pro DC is the most popular PDF (portable document format) conversion and OCR (optical character recognition) software application. It has an intuitive and simple interface, the best OCR conversion performance and can export files to Microsoft Office docs accurately.
Downloading and installing Acrobat DC is easy and the intuitive icons make it simple to locate and use the functions you’ll need. There’s also a setup wizard that will guide you through the OCR process.
Pages containing images, text and tables can be converted to editable PDF documents flawlessly. They’ll retain the exact layouts, fonts and tables of the original document and you’ll be able to search for specific text. Whether you take pics with your cell phone or import documents electronically or by means of scanning, you’ll be able to edit images using the image-editing tools and edit text or convert it to a different file format, using the OCR capability. If you’re working with multiple pages and larger projects, use the multi-page document recognition and batch OCR processing to speed up the conversion process.
What makes this software even better, is the storage cloud, integration and electronic signature features, because they make it possible to share large files with multiple recipients, who will be able to access, comment on, or sign them from anywhere, on any device.
Offering the latest technology, significantly improved export options, intuitive icons, as well as the integration, cloud service and e-sign capability, Adobe Acrobat DC has managed to outshine providers of similar services and surpass all expectation yet again, making it our favourite PDF and OCR software application to date.
