Complete PDF editor and creator with OCR

Soda PDF Pro + OCR is a complete, easy-to-use PDF reader, editor and creator that will be more than capable of meeting all your PDF needs.

Using this PDF app couldn't be simpler - open the PDF you want to use, and use the tabs across the top to view, edit, comment and more. You'll be able to add bookmarks, make comments, view in different layouts and more. Soda PDF Pro + OCR also lets you make more substantial edits, changing text, adding images and more.

If you want to create PDFs with Soda PDF Pro + OCR, you won't have a problem. You'll be able to create from a completely blank page, a form template or even convert from a variety of other document formats. One excellent Soda PDF Pro + OCR feature is the ability to import and convert documents to PDF in batch.

You'll also be pleased to see that Soda PDF Pro + OCR has good security functions, allowing you to encrypt you PDF or set a passwords and different levels of editing privileges.

Of course, what Soda PDF Pro + OCR offers that many of its competitors don't is optical character recognition (OCR). This means that the program can scan printed documents and interpret the text, leaving it ready for you to edit. True, it's relatively new technology, and the results aren't always 100%, but it's definitely a huge improvement of having to manually type information in by hand!

Although not at the top of its game, Soda PDF is a solid PDF creation suite.
