Best User Experience and Value

This Nuance Education product is strictly for academic purposes only, for use by valid students, faculty and staff of recognised educational institutions or registered charities. This box does not contain a serial number. The software cannot be installed immediately. Once you have completed a simple online form, confirming your details and proof of academic status, you will receive your serial number within 24 hours. Power PDF is the smarter value in PDF software. Now there is an alternative to Adobe Acrobat with an intuitive Office based user experience that allows users to work in the same experience they are familiar with, along with an impressive array of features specifically designed to make business users more productive. With Power PDF you get all the tools necessary to annotate, markup, secure and compress PDF plus additional features only available from Nuance for document conversion, search, connectivity and more.

Collect information with forms

Don’t let the hassle of filling out long forms slow down your business. FormTyperTM automatically converts non-fillable forms into fillable PDF forms that you can complete, save and email. Create forms from scratch using easy to use form drawing tools. Export information in filled in forms so you can sort, search and analyse the data using popular database and spreadsheet file types such as XFDF, XML, TXT and CSV files.

Perform smarter searches

Get the most accurate conversion to searchable PDF available with any PDF solution. Search everything in a document— even the contents of bookmarks and comments—so you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Use the intelligent Looks Like SearchTM capability to quickly find content, like phone numbers, email addresses and credit card numbers, via an alphanumeric pattern rather than exact text. Automatically highlight, cross-out or underline search results for faster, easier PDF editing.

Don't retype your documents

If you must work with PDF documents in other applications, don't waste valuable time recreating them-convert them. Complex layouts with columns, tables and graphics are faithfully reproduced in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Corel WordPerfect documents. You also get exceptional spreadsheet control and features to allow you to combine all pages of a PDF document into a single Excel worksheet to eliminate tedious cutting and pasting. You can even select, copy, and convert only the selected areas of text you need from a PDF document.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Ive used loads of pdf programs over the years - from acrobat to free pdf printer software.

This is a full featured PDF suite - it works nicely with Nuance paperport and is very "no nonsense". it converts pdf to office etc, edits pdfs and allows security features to be added,etc etc

so far it has done everything i hoped it would do - just this morning I scanned 65 pages into a pdf via my HP printer and this produced a 26mb file - I loaded this file into Power PDF and ran the optimisation routine and it reduced it to 7mb - a godsend when I had to email it and the original size would have been to big for many peoples email providers.

Overall it does everything that acrobat does (at least it does for me - an average small business owner) and it does so quickly and effortlessly.

Really like it and will use this every day.

If you want to move the software to another pc you need to uninstall and de-register it first - not tried this but no reason to think it won't work ok.

looking at other reviews I'm unsure if this version does less then previous ones - can't comment on that - It everything I require. I'm also using it with office 2010 rather than 2013 which maybe an issue reading the other reviews.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I ordered this to replace Abbey Fine Reader 10 which is a good program but was getting flaky under Windows 2013. It works in the same way using Optical Character Recognition to scan and format documents as PDF or allow them to be edited in other programs such as Word. The install was not straightforward as my PC could not find the "setup" file as it is called "bootstrapper" and returned an error instead of self installing although the install was smooth when a manually ran the file. It also installs add ons to Microsoft Office 2013 for easy access.

The software itself is staightforward to use but I had a few issues with the way it works with Word 2013 as it replaces that programs built in PDF functionality, as noted by other reviewers. I can see no way of preventing this and I would prefer it to work alongside this and not replace it as there are times where the built in functionality is faster. It is compatible with Dragon Naturally Speaking also by Nuance and supports speech to text and text to speech functionality.

Power PDF does work well from my experience converting PDF documents to text and allowing the creation of PDF files compatible with other Adobe PDF viewer as well other programs. I am not sure the OCR is as accurate as the Abbey product but it is still pretty good and only requires minor tidying up. It comes with its own Cloud Storage which may be useful and is also compatible with others such as Dropbox and Sky Drive. Looking at the functionality the Standard Version covers most of the functionality required without too much bloat-ware often supplied with Premium versions.

A useful program but not cheap and could do with a slicker installation and integration with Microsoft Office.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
When ordering this product I was a little sceptical about what the Power PDF Standard could provide me when I already had Nuance PDF Converter Professional 7.0 (PC) on my PC, which has served me very well indeed over the last few years and a product I really liked. I was however having one problem with the software since upgrading my computer hardware to Windows 8.1 and Microsoft Office 365, and that was a persistent error when opening MS Word (Word Cannot Start the Converter...), which was annoying (not that I could really see how it affected me once I'd clicked OK!). On searching for an answer for this I found this was an issue with software's incompatibility and that this could be resolved by changes to the registry (which I was NOT about to do!). So, on installation of the Power PDF Standard software I am pleased to report that this issue is now resolved, for which I am grateful! The install itself was straight-forward (though slightly bemused by the setup being called 'bootstrapper'!) and pleasingly it allowed me the option to upgrade current Nuance software or install a separate version in addition to keeping the original PDF Professional Converter 7, which I thought was excellent. As it is I opted for the upgrade, due to the previous issued described with the current version.

The software itself is great, straightforward and easy to use and as far as I can tell does exactly the same as my previous professional version. I'm particularly pleased with its accessibility features, as it's compatible with

Have been using version 9 of Abby - absolutely accept that is an older programme. This Nuance one is so much easier to use and incredible at converting stuff into either word or PowerPoint which is very important to me.

I work freelance and write a fair number of new business presentations for a design company. They hate PowerPoint as apparently you cannot cut and past from it into InDesign. Now I can write away in jolly old PowerPoint, save it as a PDF, then save it to word and send it off to them.

Works in reverse as well. They can send me a PDF and I can convert it into Word or PowerPoint for rewriting.

Found it very simple to use and it maintained the integrity and formatting of the original documents very well.
