You may want to check with the person that does purchasing for your
campus IT department. We get pricing for Adobe Acrobat Pro XI for
$68.00. It used to be $40 and has recently gone up. Our contract is
with Adobe for purchases through CDWG. It is not the best for OCR and
not the easiest to process documents with but it does a pretty good
job. Because of the pricing it is what I recommend to our departments
and faculty. It states in our purchase info that the license is good
for 2 installs; office and if necessary a home computer.
