The goal is to automatically convert all scanned documents into searchable PDF files instead of just images. The scanned documents are automatically uploaded by the scanner to a share on a Linux server as PDF files.
The software should be able to monitor the folder and automatically OCR the scanned documents and add the recognized text to the PDF file to make it searchable. It should also be able to handle multi-page PDFs well.
- Work automatically in the background without any additional manual steps
- Being able to add the OCRed text back into the PDF in the proper way (so that desktop search engines will be able to index it)
- Able to handle multi-page PDF files
