This collection of scanned-in memos from the Obama-Biden transition wasn't much of a match for Adobe Acrobat, which recognized the text with only a few minor errors. It even handled italics well.
In seconds, Acrobat converted the documents we tested into searchable PDFs without missing a single word. The conversion did result in a handful of misinterpretations, many of them simply leaving out or inserting a space.
The program only flubbed actual words in a few cases, where it substituted near-identical characters. "Findings," for example, was recognized incorrectly as "fmdings," and "infrastructure" as "inii•strcture."
