Hello  Miso,
If you are able to email the PDF to yourself, you may be able to view
it as an HTML document. I tend to open PDF documents and copy and
paste the information into MS Word. If you have Kurzweil, you have the
option to run a paperless scan.

Hopefully some of this helps.
Very best wishes,
Sandra.
