I want to make PDF-Files searchabke. These Files come from my scanner in PDF-Format. It is possible to send an PDF with just images to the api and get a searchable version of the PDF back? My idea is to replace the recognition step in Acrobat and automate it.

If this is possible, the API here would be very interessting for me.

Thanks a lot!
