ABBYY FineReader Pro Editor's Review

While Macs tend to outshine Windows based PCs in many segments comfortably there are a few areas where they lag behind. One such example is optical-character-reading app. Traditionally, Windows users can pick from more OCR apps compared to Mac users. However, Mac users can still resort to a powerful app like Abbyy's FineReader Pro. The app lacks a few less features compared to its Windows counterpart though.

It runs on Macs with OS X 10.7 Lion and later editions. Abbyy FineReader Pro for Mac is a multilingual app.

The app lives up to the expectation and like its Windows counterpart does a nice job of handling OCR tasks in general. It does not falter in recognizing text, layouts and graphic elements. It can output editable documents in a plethora of formats like Word, HTML or plain text. It also excels in making PDF output.

Abbyy FineReader Pro can be used in an automated mode or you can choose settings at every stage of operation, based on your needs. The app has a sleek UI. At its left side, there is option to sect document source. The right side displays operation options like Convert to Excel Spreadsheet. Of course, there are options to tweak output options. After the app completes the operation, it prompts you to specify output location.

In manual operation, you can tinker with document and image conversion to large extent. For example, you can edit an image with its bundled image editor. Then the app analyzes pages to find out tables, pictures and text content. The OCR engine does a nice job of conversion and every rarely it mistakes images as text. It fares well even when dealing with old Xerox pages.

The Mac version comes sans the excellent proofreading feature found in its Windows counterpart. So, you cannot perform much correction in a document within the app. You will need to edit everything in target app such as Excel or word. This can be a little troublesome when you want to export in PDF format. You will need to use third party app to rectify errors before exporting to PDF.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, clean UI.
•    Excellent OCR engine.
•    Multiple output formats supported.

Negative Points:
•    No integrated proofreader.

Abbyy FineReader Pro’s Mac edition lives up to the legacy made by its Windows counterpart largely. It is unbeatable when it comes to OCR capability and ease of use is great as well. You can deal with various types of documents for OCR needs including photocopies. The output options are aplenty too. You can use its various automated operations or perform OCR conversion manually. Except for absence of proofreader the app does not have any serious glitch.

Rating: 4/5
