Elucidate interface

Simple. Searchable. PDFs.

No other OCR tool for Mac is as easy, simple, or affordable as Elucidate.

Drop a scanned PDF on Elucidate, and receive a searchable copy in no time. Elucidate analyzes your PDF and adds unobtrusive searchable text overtop so you can look up terms, highlight, and take notes in the PDF editor of your choice.

8 languages are now supported, and the app is faster than ever. Elucidate will even separate pages from face-down book scans and output raw text files (enable in Preferences). This no-frills utility is a must-have for academics, archivists, or anyone who has a lot of scanned PDFs on their hands.
