View Full Version : Spell checking the whole PDF

I can't remember if I have posted about this before, but does anyone know of a spell checker for PDFs? Not just the forms fields of user input (like Acrobat), but I mean the embedded text.

In a perfect world, the spell checking should have been done in the page layout applications. Unfortunately there is no way to verify this, as there is no spelling preflight going on anywhere.

I recently tried a product called Neo by Esko, also called PDF Extreme by Enfocus, and it caught about 50% of the misspellings of a test PDF page. Apparently "wixcyyyylaq" is a word to Neo. They wanted $5K for that PDF editing program. A real bargain if you only want to randomly spell check half of the words on a page.

Anything else out there that spell checks the whole PDF?
