Adobe Acrobat X's text recognition tools makes life easier

https://download.uky.edu now has Adobe Acrobat X (Windows or Mac) available to students and faculty for free. For those of you who want to transition from reading paper copies of articles and book chapters, Acrobat X's text recognition tools will allow you to go completely digital. This suite of tools will even work for scanned images of documents and will transform a pdf full of images of pages to a pdf with searchable text that can be annotated (highlight, write notes, underline, etc.) and allows copying and pasting of text. So empty your filing cabinets of paper copies and feed them into a feeder scanner and make some room in your office to give more seating for students or office plants, whichever you prefer.
