Converting Multiple PDF Files Using Kurzweil 3000 Automator: Preparing Your Files

I’ve got 10 PDF files ready for conversion, placed in my starred folder, aptly named ‘in.’ The Kurzweil 3000 Automator (K 3000) is about to make this task seamless. First, move the files you want to convert into your chosen folder. After launching K 3000, select the start file you want to use. In my case, I have a folder on my desktop named ‘in,’ and my destination folder for the processed files is ‘out.’

The Conversion Process: Step by Step

Once the folders are set up, Kurzweil will begin to perform OCR on the files. You can watch the progress as the page count shifts through each one of the pages in the bottom right corner of the screen.

As each file completes, they’ll land inside the ‘out’ folder. Kurzweil then relaunches the program to continue converting the files. Just let it run, and soon, all your files will be ready in the output folder.

Handling Errors

Keep in mind, hundreds of files can be processed, but occasionally an error may occur. If an error stops the program, you’ll have to address it before proceeding. Typically this includes deleting the .dat file in the output folder.
