A lot of people use scanners to save physical documents as digital images like JPG or PNG. This is very useful because this way you can make backup copies of your original documents and you can also easily send documents via email. But what happens when you receive such a document? How do you extract the text from a scanned document?

The answer to that question is that you cannot directly extract the text from a scanned document since it is basically an image and to extract text from an image you would need a software with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) capabilities. Such software programs that extract text from scanned documents through OCR usually cost hundreds of dollars. But maybe you don't want to spend a huge amount of money just to extract some text from a scanned document. This is where 3StepPDF comes in.
