Much Better Than Any Other OCR Software That I Have Tried

By Rose Sincro

On Friday, June 20, 2014

I have been using Abby FineReader for almost 3 years now, and I have to admit that I am very satisfied with its performance. The program worked so well, and it made a very good job of reading the documents that I scanned. I can say that this one is more accurate compared to my previous OCR package, which came free with a scanner. This program always captures the layout and images correctly, so some post editing may be necessary, but if the objective is to transcribe the text, it will probably work well.

In addition, this program is good for copying text document into Word, so it enables you to make changes if required. Also, it takes care all of the hard copies that you will record on your computer. All in all, this program is suitable for editing physical documents. With this program, you will not have any problems with your work or tasks.

Pros

  • Able to read columns and tables
  • Works nicely on tables, even vertical ones

Cons

  • Has a hard time distinguishing text from pictures

A Powerful Software That Is Designed For Editing Physical Documents

By Isay Almenanza

On Tuesday, June 17, 2014

ABBYY FineReader Professional is an excellent product and I have been using this since I purchased the previous versions of it. In my opinion this program is a very refined, efficient and reliable product that produces the needs of users like me.

For about 5 years or so, I have been stuck using OmniPage. I bought 18 after it came out on the market to substitute the 16 I was using. As time passed by, OmniPage became increasingly hard to use for speedy OCR jobs. And because of that, I purchased the latest version of Abby. I am glad I bought it. It is more advanced and accurate compared to OmniPage, and it is simpler to use for basic tasks. Also, the opening screen provides a selection of tasks. After you choose a task, the program will walk you through a given process. Overall, this program is worth its value. Not perfect, but it is better than the other programs out there.

Pros

  • Saves time and effort when it comes to translating data
  • Can convert PDF to text searchable PDF

Cons

  • This program has no spell correction
