A paperless office workflow
Authored by: idf on Jan 13, '13 08:14:59AM

If you have a Canon scanner (either a cheap 20 flatbed) or a scanner as part of an all-in-one, the PDF scanning option automatically performs OCR and embeds the text within the PDF. Although the PDF scans are only images, the text in the resulting PDF can be selected, copied and pasted. Spotlight picks up on this text without problem.

I only found this by accident when a spotlight search turned up a PDF scan.
