TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.

Acrobat asked me to test a utility for him. It's called Gemini, and it's
made by Iceni Technologies (www.iceni.com). It extracts text and images into

It's an Acrobat plug-in, so you have to have Acrobat (not just Reader) to
use it. The trial version produces text with randomly scrambled words to
prevent you form using it commercially. I'd like to get the full version and
give it a try.
