PDF to DOC converter [duplicate]

Hello, there! Could you recommend a PDF to DOC converter that would not insert line breaks on each line, but would detect paragraphs. Or that would not, even worse, convert each line to a text box?

"Google Docs is now testing a new API feature that uses OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on images and PDFs.

that has less than 10 MB and Google

into a new document. Google mentions

up to 40 seconds"" and a small test

returns errors.

service is free and it's constantly
improving. Here's the result of the
OCR for this scanned document:



Edit: Whoops! ~quack reminded me I forgot the last step! A Google Docs document can be exported in a number of different formats, including HTML, OpenOffice, and Word:"
