P D F Converter
The P D F Converter is a free, small utility that can extract text and images from a P D F file, saving text to a text file for easy reading and creating copies of embedded images. P D F Converter is designed especially as an aid to blind people, but it can also be useful to sighted people.
P D F files can be difficult for screen reading software to handle. Moreover, there is no reason that blind people - or anyone else, for that matter - should have to read P D F files directly. The P D F format (Portable Document Format) is designed to provide accurate printing of files that may include both text and graphics. It is a poor choice for any other use, and is an awkward format to read, even for sighted people. But unfortunately, P D F format has become very popular because it comes in a very 'official looking' package. That makes it appealing to business people who know a lot about making an impression and know very little about file formats.
In many cases - and particularly for blind people - the most sensible way to handle P D F files is to just extract the text to a simple text file and avoid the cumbersome P D F format altogether. That is what the P D F Converter lets you do. In cases where the content is actually images, it may be possible to extract the images and use O C R software to get the text.
Using P D F Converter P D F Converter adds up to two menu items on the context menu for P D F files. One says 'Convert To Text'. The other says 'Extract PDF Images'. Clicking 'Convert To Text' will create a text file next to the P D F file that has the same file name. Clicking 'Extract PDF Images' will create a folder named 'PDF-images', into which extracted images will be copied. There are three steps to convert a P D F file or extract its images:
Step One: Select a P D F file. To select a file means that the focus is on that file. Files are selected, for example, when you down arrow through Explorer. The file name that your screen reader speaks is the file currently selected.
Step two: With a P D F file selected, press the context menu key. The context menu key is the third key to the right from the space bar. (Unlike the Alt, Control and Windows keys, there is only one context menu key.)
Step three: Use down arrow to cycle through items on the context menu until you reach the desired menu item. Then press the Enter key.
That is the complete instructions for use of the P D F Converter.

About converting P D F files to text and extracting images The real work of extracting the text and images from P D F files in the P D F Converter is done by pdftotext.exe and pdfimages.exe, which are part of the Open Source project XPDF. XPDF also includes a P D F viewer program and various other utilities. pdftotext.exe and pdfimages.exe are command line programs, not very useful on their own. The role of P D F Converter is just to make the XPDF programs easily usable. The XPDF files can be obtained from http://www.foolabs.com/xpdf/. They are released under GNU Public License and the source code is also available. Thank you to the authors and maintainers of XPDF for their work and their generosity.
Installing P D F Converter To install P D F Converter just download the installer file from the link below. The file name is pconsetup.exe or p c o n s e t u p dot e x e. After downloading, run the installer file by selecting it and pressing the Enter key.
Troubleshooting NotesContext menu option disappears: If you uninstall or re-install any P D F software, the context menu option may disappear. If that happens just install P D F Converter again. (Some P D F software installation seems to damage the settings needed to create the context menu. A re-install of P D F Converter will restore the settings.)
Converted P D F file is empty: P D F Converter can retrieve actual text inside a P D F file. However, not all P D F files contain text. For instance, in some cases a magazine article or book saved as a P D F file may actually contain pictures of the pages from that article or book, rather than the text itself. If you happen across an empty P D F file you might try writing to the webmaster where the download came from and ask if they would consider providing a text-based download. Alternatively, extract the images and use O C R software on those to get the text.
Requirements PDF Converter can be used on Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP/2003. Windows Vista/7/8/10 are not directly supported because file restrictions on those versions are problematic. It will probably work, but you will need admin status to set up the program and could still have trouble with creating the necessary Registry settings.
About locked PDF files In some cases a PDF file may be locked so that text or images cannot be extracted. Unfortunately, it's a common practice that is rarely justified. The locking functionality is not actually in the PDF file. The PDF only contains settings, a request that the file be locked. In other words, PDF files are locked only because people who write PDF reader software usually cripple their software deliberately, respecting lock flags in PDF files.
So why doesn't PDF Converter bypass the locking function? That would seem to be sensible. After all, if someone has allowed you to have a copy of their images or text, why should they care if you want to access them outside of the awkward PDF container? Blocking the extraction of text and images in a PDF is no different from trying to block the copying of text or images from a webpage.
However, the author(s) of the XPDF tools see things differently. They describe the bypassing of PDF locks as 'cracking'! They feel that people should contact the author for an unlocked version rather than opening a locked version. That position is rather unrealistic. Many authors may not even be reachable. Many may not know how to change settings when they produce a PDF file..They very well may not know that they locked the file in the first place! What sense does it make to chase down the author for permission to access a file that they already made available?
Nevertheless, we feel obliged to respect the position of the XPDF authors on this issue, since PDF Converter is using their tools. Therefore, you may find some PDF files that do not allow you to convert to text or extract images. Sorry. We can't offer any help with that. It is not PDF Converter causing the problem. It is pdftotext.exe and pdfimages.exe. The XPDF tools can be recompiled to ignore any lock settings in PDF files. The source code is freely available and the change requires only a minor edit to create uncrippled versions of pdftotext.exe and pdfimages.exe. But that option is only available to people capable of recompiling the source code.
