Hmmm ... I would be surprised if he is using a true "image" OCR program. I suspect a mis-speak! :) While I have no reason to transfer from FrameMaker to Word, I do use a program from Nuance (formerly Scansoft) called "PDF Converter 3" to bring in standard PDF files into Word. This works directly on the PDF file, not an image. And, PDF Converter 3 does provide pretty darn good results for this conversion process. Z
