OCR help needed

Can someone do me a favor and run a PDF through their OCR software? You can find it xxx.

Here you go.

FYI I used ABBYY.

Both files are RTF. One uses the "original layout" setting and one uses the "Text flow" setting. I wasn't sure which one would yield the best results on the tables.

That's come out rather well, Doreenjoy. Would you mind saying which OCR program you used?

I thought I did. That'll teach me to think I remember acronyms.

I used ABBYY's PDF Transformer version 3.0. I think it cost something like $60? It's been worth every penny. It will convert the font styles to Microsoft Word styles, which makes modifying the text a little easier for me.

I'll second doreenjoy's thumbs up for ABBYY PDF Transformer. It's an excellent program. I go straight to HTML, then into Calibre.
