** Note that Evernote provides OCR for Evernote Premium users; free Evernote users may not get text searchable PDFs in their Evernote account **
** Important Limitations on Google Docs OCR: If you are using ScanDrop to upload to Google Docs and select the Google OCR option note that Google is supplying this OCR and it has certain limitations. Google limits the amount of data that it will accept during the OCR process and rejects documents that are more than 2 mb in size if you have opted for Google’s OCR – this is usually one or two pages. Google’s OCR happens at the time of upload and will increase the amount of time required to upload the document. If you have problems with Google’s OCR please contact Google’s customer service, not OfficeDrop’s as OfficeDrop has no control over the quality, consistency, latency or reliability of Google’s service.**
**OCR Note: Dropbox, you local disk, gmail and desktop mail do not provide OCR.**
**Please try ScanDrop Lite before purchasing ScanDrop - it's a free way to test to see if your scanner is supported. No refunds will be given if you haven't tested first with ScanDrop Lite.**
