Project Description

I have 19 PDF books, totaling ~4276 pages in pretty decent quality. I sent one of them to an OCR place and they sent it right back as text. Of those 4276 only half, 2138 pages are text. These are old books on advertsing and have loads of pictures. So I need someone who has a good OCR program to run these through and transform them from pdf to text. I dont need the pictures, only the text. I am attaching a sample book along with this. I accept that I will need to proofread the text and clear up typos afterwards, but the text needs to be reasonably readable. This may necessitate a higher quality OCR program.
