As you may know, when I want to OCR a bunch of PDFs at once as part of my scanning workflow, I use an Applescript droplet to have Adobe Acrobat OCR the files.
The other day I came across this blog post from Jonathan Bowman over at Adobe. He shows how to use a feature of Acrobat that I didn’t notice before: Batch Processing.
He has screenshots showing how it works, but I thought I would put together this video that shows how I set it up.
The nice thing about it is the process is pretty much the same whether you use Mac or PC.
By the way, there are a ton of things you can use Batch Processing for, not just making PDFs searchable. I will definitely be poking around in there.
Do you use Acrobat Batch Processing for anything?
Thanks so much for this tutorial! It was exactly what I needed. I just wish there had been a transcript or other text instructions, because watching the video took forever =T
