Get what you pay for

Freeware doesn't get the job done

The seemingly free PDF-editing solutions on the Web come with a cost. “Freemium alternatives don’t boast useful tools like built-in merging, advanced annotation options, and an expanded font selection,” according to Digital Trends, which praises Nuance Power PDF for “the ability to create interactive PDFs in nearly any Windows application,” “document access available through various Cloud services,” “advanced search functions,” and more.

PDF standard: accuracy

The accuracy you deserve

Whether you’re creating PDFs from paper documents, or converting PDF files to common formats like Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, “close enough” accuracy isn’t good enough. Power PDF Standard uses Nuance’s leading OCR technology, the industry’s best conversion technology, to deliver the most accurate versions of your documents—even reproducing complex layouts with columns, tables, and graphics.
