The straight conversion is easy using a great many free

OCR is the hard part and I've yet to hear of anything that is
even close to remotely acceptable. At say 1000 words/page
a success rate of 99.9% still leaves you with one fix up
per page. That's a good chunk of work for even a small manual
(say 200 pages). It's a lot of work for an RT-11 manual set
or similar!
