    Scan receipts as searchable PDFs

    Hello,

    Do you have any recommendations for inexpensive phone or office app to scan receipts as searchable PDFs and put in the cloud?

    I have file folders I keep for monthly bills. Every 6 months to a year it overflows and I purge and shred everything. I see dozens of programs/scanners but I can't
    get a good read on the OCR capabilities. Would I love it to create a report of expenses? Sure would, but not a deal breaker.

    Would be willing to spend around $150 ish but not much more.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Don

    Thank you for these links. Most I have seen. Have you had good luck with a particular device or software?

    The software I usually use is pricier than you would probably want. I generally use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. Depending on how decent a receipt printout you have, most OCR software should do OK.

    Thank you jdc2000.

    Yes, I looked at your choice and it's price and functionality are waaaay beyond what I need.
    I appreciate your suggestions and your thoughts though. You have been a help to me. Thanks again,
