Welcome to the world of one-stop scanning and text recognition.
Anyone who scanned to PDF in earlier versions of Acrobat will appreciate the one-step operation for scanning to PDF and
performing text recognition via Acrobat's Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine and many new enhancements to Acrobat Scan. The one-stop scanning introduced in Acrobat 8 was improved in Acrobat 9 through the implementation of a new scanning technology called ClearS can, the addition of presets that support custom settings you can configure for various source materials, creating multiple files from scanned documents, adding multiple scanned documents to a PDF Portfolio, and much more with Acrobat Scan features.
When performing a scan in Acrobat, you are not limited to scanning documents for text conversions. Acrobat enables you to scan photos and images that might have some other uses. Therefore, this chapter covers all the aspects of scanning from within Acrobat using the Scan to PDF command and the Text Recognition commands.
