I bought the PDF Conversion Utility from Microsoft.

I is available as an App from their Microsoft Store online.

I works good on good legible PDF files, where the pages

do not come out as "IMAGES" in the resulting ".DOC" or ."DOCX"

file.

 

I have come across a good online Converter that will take

the "IMAGES" in a Word Document and convert to text, oftentimes

preserving the Greek Text....

It is better to convert first from PDF to HTM and save it in the UTF-8 encoding (That is the Unicode that you need for the Hebrew or Greek scripts)

Open the HTM with notepad and type

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html class="client-nojs">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8"/>
</head>
<body>

Enter here the text under the body and "save as" in UTF-8 encoding.

βιβλος is Book in Greek.
</body>
</html>

Thanks for the ideas.

Marco. I have tried different software and they didn't work. Before purchasing the software, did you notice the problem I experienced and this solved it?

Katoog. I tried using adobe acrobat to output to html setting, i was  not seeing an option for utf8. i was not seeing an html output for omnipage.  Im curious how the notepad data should be included in the html output.Can i ask a  more step by step procedure and which software  you are using?

Normally if you convert adobe acrobat with Hebrew and Greek script html use it by default UF8 (If you can see the Hebrew and Greek script correctly with a browser)

 

Open a random htm file and change the .htm in the file name into  .txt

Or open or create  a txt file with notepad.

click on the file menu and "save as" OR Crtr+Shift+S

Left from the save button is there an "Encoding" menu

If the menu shows ANSI or another UTF format then click and change it to UTF-8

then click on the save button.

Now is you document formatted in  UTF-8

delete everything OR Crtr+a and the delete key on your keyboard.

Then copy this

 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html class="client-nojs">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8"/>
</head>
<body>

Enter here the text under the body and "save as" in UTF-8 encoding.

βιβλος is Book in Greek.
</body>
</html>

 

save it again and change the .txt extension into .htm or .html

is the PDF you are starting with image or text if you are using omnipage pro I assume its image OCR is not even close to perfect and less so with Greek. The Hebrew never did work right so i replaced with strongs number what I had to do is proof the resulting text with the un-OCR'ed PDF manually fix the English and then manually enter the Greek

May God change our hearts to what the truth is

2Ti_2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Rom_9:16 So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.

2Ti 2:24-25  And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;
