Re: [orca-list] PDF with Orca

As suggested using the -layout option with pdftotext may help.

Another option is to look at pdftohtml, I find using pdftohtml with the -c option normally will give fairly good output.

I have found that pdftotext does not properly parse files writtne in magazine or newspaper style (multicolumn). That is why I use acrobat reader which does a slightly better job of making these more readable.

Hi everyone.

Since the question came up here pretty often, how you can read PDF files
with Orca: I have written a GUI frontend for pdftotext in Python.
