I've found adobe acrobat x to be great for OCR and indexing of PDFs. Nothing else I've used comes close to what it can recognise.

There's lots I don't like about Acrobat X (and now DC), but ClearScan is an awesome format for scanning and retaining PDF documents. I wish (though don't expect) Adobe would open source it.

Have you used ABBYY software? Just interested in a comparison.
