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
