It is very cheap, in fact, it costs nothing!
if you're interested please contact me directly and I'll send you the 
free commandline version of the Infty Reader plus the universal 
printer software for converting pdfs to tiff.
It's all free and legal.

The Infty software also outputs data in the LaTeX format which is 
pure text and can be read and updated in any text editor. That said, 
the EdSharp text editor offers the option of reading the LaTeX source 
without getting too destracted by the syntax.

Again, I stress, none of this costs a penny. Please let us not be 
economical with the truth especially when people come to us in fgood 
faith for impartial advice.


Regards,
Paul
