My experience with a number of them but around ten years ago was that the proofreading after OCR was almost as tedious as typing

It all depends on what the usage and how clear the document is.

ABBYY FineReader does a great job (try the online version free https://finereaderonline.com/en-us), and with the Dekstop version you can train the program based on your own text. But it is not very cheap.

Is it just a pdf reader or it reads script too, it doesnt say clearly on the website

It is a top of the line OCR program.

Not sure what you mean by scripts.

I2OCR has been good for me in the past (over 90% accurate for what I needed)

Free and fast to start, upload a page to test it and decide yourself.

by script do you mean handwriting?
I suspect that is beyond the ability of software period. perhaps AI trained on a specific writer's handwriting and body of work...
