A few good resources:

*http://www.onlineocr.net – works extremely well – 20 pages of mult-page PDF free (more for $$).

$29.99 Software, my test works well – http://solutions.weblite.ca/pdfocrx/

Abbyy – Software, $99 – http://buy.abbyyusa.com/content/freemac/default.aspx

Google Docs – up to 2 MB file using the “upload file” feature. Works okay, not as good as the pro software

 Adobe Acrobat Professional (8) Рworks okay.
