Useful Productivity Tool - free online PDF to WORD converter

This is a guest post from Veronica Johnson about a free PDF to Word online converter tool that looks very useful to use

Holidays have started. Now is the right time for you as a teacher to enjoy your vacation and not think about work. However, as much as we would all love a year-long vacation, that’s simply not possible. Unfortunately, this one, like many before it, will pass by before you even realize it began. What often happens is that just when you fully start to relax, the holidays are over and the only thing you have left is the hope you charged your batteries for the new school year.

If this scenario sounds familiar, don’t panic. To make sure you have some peace of mind while vacationing, you should plan ahead and think about how to start the next term prepared. That basically means organizing unfinished paperwork before it becomes a nightmare. So, what to do with all those papers that you left to pile up at home or your work desk (documents, school materials, tests and exams)? Well, you can easily repurpose most of them to save time when the new term starts. In the majority of cases those documents come in two forms: printed or scanned and stored in PDF. Whatever the case may be, there is simply not enough time in the world to manually transcribe each document. And that’s the last thing you’d want to do during a vacation. So, what do you in similar situations when you have the documents, but no way to edit them without retyping them word for word?

PDF OCR service
Luckily for you, there are some free tools that can help. One of them is Investintech’s online PDF OCR service that lets you convert your scanned and native PDFs to completely editable Word files. That way you can be confident when digitizing your documents that your important work will remain on your computer and not on your desk. And you can change and edit the files when you find it convenient.

The tool is located on the left side of the page and is extremely simple to use:

Step 1
Select a PDF file from your computer that you would like to convert.

Step 2.
Type the email address to which you would like to receive your converted file.

Step 3.
Simply press the Start button and you are done. Soon enough, you will receive an email with a link to your converted file.

Benefits of using this tool
What is left to mention is that the tool is completely free, with no limitations to the file size or the number of conversions. It is completely web based, so there is no need to install anything on your computer. Also, it keeps your converted file as close as possible to the original document.

With this tool, you will be ready for your classes and the next school term. To be honest, you will be so prepared that your students will wonder whether you’ve actually been on vacation. But only you and you little online helper will know the answer. Have a great vacation!
