How Indxr Works

Target libraries or individual folders

Perform OCR of PDF files at SharePoint document library or individual folder level, saving the resulting PDF in either the same or a different library.

Overwrite or pre-fix new files

Overwrite the source file during processing or pre-fix the new file with configurable text.

Copy metadata

Copy the SharePoint metadata stored against your source PDF files to the target file during processing.

Replicate file permissions

Replicate any unique file permissions to the target file once OCR is complete.

Force OCR

Ensure all documents have a text layer added, regardless of whether a text layer already exists on the file.

Free and Unlimited Searchability Audits

Discover how many of your SharePoint PDFs aren’t searchable because they’re missing a text layer.

  • FREE: A tool you can use completely for free, available for everyone to use
  • UNLIMITED: Run unlimited audits to check your PDF searchability
  • CONFIGURABLE: Audit specific libraries and folders or your entire SharePoint site
