The only way I could do this myself was to use Adobe Acrobat itself, but unfortunatly it's not free.

I couldn't find a free way of doing this.

I'm not sure if there is any free way to do that. We use a third-party toolkit named leadtools that gives us very good results when OCRing PDF documents. I know that they have an online demo, you can try it. Here is the link for the demo:

If the results match your requirements, you can check this tutorial:
