PDFs can be made machine-readable using Adobe Acrobat tools.

Open the pdf in Adobe and click on TOOLS near the top.

Click on SCAN & OCR under Create & Edit.

Click on RECOGNIZE TEXT – in this file.

Then click on the blue box RECOGNIZE TEXT. 

Adobe Acrobat will convert your document to machine-readable text. Save the new file to ICON and you’re all set. More information may be found at Digital Accessibility @ Iowa.
