I use DocuScan Plus.
It wil do OCR on the fly and seems to work quite well.

Adobe reader is still free.
Its not so much the reading of them that is the main issue, its the attitude and knowledge of those making pdfs that has to change.
All too often files are untagged for changes in reading order, say when different numbers of columns exist through the document or in some cases people simply scan in a picture of text and make the whole pdf an unreadable document without eyes, and often its so badly scanned that OCR makes it into Klingon.

If you want a text based pdf reader, you could do far worse than the one on the webbie web site. It just works. It has no way to correct for the madness of the file creator though....

hay I was wondering if any of you know of a good program for reading and
opening PDF files. I don't know if adobe still works or if you have to pay
for it. Just let me know.
