There is a way to produce searchable documents in djvu format. Just
send your .ps or .pdf to , the Any2DjVu
Server, and then download your document as .djvu.

The djvu format has many advantages, in particular, it is very compact.
A scanned book with 1000 pages (300 dpi) takes about 5 Mb while in .pdf
format it takes about 50 Mb.
