In the Example code below we show how to use the LEAD OCR engine to convert a non-searchable PDF to a searchable PDF.

This is a very simple process as outlined below:

Establish the Input and Output file paths.
Create and start the OCR engine.
Recognize the document and save.

At the bottom of this post is a functioning v20 C# project available for download, that includes a LEADTOOLS test file for converting.


            string inFile = @"PATH TO NON-SEARCHABLE PDF";
            string outFile = @"OUTPUT PATH";

            using (IOcrEngine ocrEngine = OcrEngineManager.CreateEngine(OcrEngineType.LEAD, false))
                ocrEngine.Startup(null, null, null, @"C:\LEADTOOLS 20\Bin\Common\OcrLEADRuntime");

                using (IOcrDocument ocrDocument = ocrEngine.DocumentManager.CreateDocument())
                    ocrDocument.Pages.AddPages(inFile, 1, -1, null);

                    ocrDocument.Save(outFile, DocumentFormat.Pdf, null);
