Image PDF to Searchable PDF

Hello,

Is there any way to convert an image only PDF to a searchable PDF
without going through a scanner? In other words, are there software that
can do this task directly on the computer?

Or, does using OCR software merely mean running the image PDF file through
the software and produce a searchable PDF?

What reliable softwares are available?

Are there programs that run independently? That is, without needing full
Acrobat or aome other adjunct software?

Thanks,

Guru

Guru,
Abbyy Finereader.  It is an OCR software.  Takes image only pdf and
turns out image+text or pdf normal page.  You have to review and
correct individual recognition errors though.
