Find Scanned PDFs without OCR?


I was trying to figure out a way to search within PDFs that have not gone through OCR.

Using Google led me to this post: … ocr-layer/.

When I tried to go to the linked script in the referenced DevonAcademy location ( …, I got a wonderful 404.

Two questions:

1 - Is this script still viable and available?
2 - If it is not viable (the post was posted in 2007), is there another option to do this?

Thank you.


That’s a really ancient and obsolete script :slight_smile: You could use a smart group, see e.g. Data > New from Template > Smart Groups > PDFs (not searchable).
