I have been using this for the last few weeks. The online OCR feature is
nice. But I have found it to be untimely. It has taken the service more
than 48 hours to deliver the the document back after conversion. Plus, if
using JAWS, it strangely manages to take over the insert/capslock key like
its paid counterpart. One has to end-task JFW and restart it. It may be a
nice alternative to Acrobat Reader for everyone else.

Little the time ago I ran across nuance PDF reader.

If you haven't tried it already it has a wonderful feature allowing you to
convert a PDF to Word or any other format. You take a image PDF (it does
have to be at a PDF) Select their PDF converter it will open you to a
webpage and and a few minutes later you will receive any e-mail of this word
document with quite a good recognition and preserves the layout quite
nicely. One does need to correct any rotation issues.
