[FoRK] Strange request

Adobe Capture was a great product a few (10!) years ago.  It performed
OCR on the scanned images in the PDFs, added the text as an annotation
(for indexing, etc.) and had a pretty good tool for finding
questionable text in context so it could be corrected manually.

It's still available, apparently, as Capture 3.0.  Too bad -- they
used to give it away...

It's also possible that the document has been encrypted so that you
can't copy text from it.
