Software to make PDFs more readable?

Does anyone know of software (preferably for the Mac) that will do this:

  • Detect when a book has been scanned two sheets to a page
  • Split the image so that each page of the book is on its own page of the file
  • Perform OCR on the text?

It seems to me that this must exist, but I can’t figure out any way to do it that isn’t laborious and time-consuming. (I have access to Acrobat, if there’s a way to do it in Acrobat?)

Someone else already suggested Briss, which does the cropping, but not the OCR.

I just installed Briss a couple hours ago, and it works *amazingly* for the cropping.
