OCR in Pega 8.3


I would like some suggestions when it comes to implementing OCR in my pega application (Version 8.3 running Customer service). Most of the information I've found relates to robotics. So my question is 2 part:

  • What is suggested OCR to use? I see a documentation on Abby document reader and more recently, google vision for pega. Abby documentations specifies the use of Linux for installation which is not my case as my App server runs windows. Google vision looks more direct but documentation says Pega 8.4 and Customer service. Can I use Google vision with 8.3?
  • I would also like to know if OCR suggested by Pega can be used on a non robotic application. My requirement is simply upload a PDF and use OCR to convert image to text. 

Do let me know if the above is possible
