ABBYY FineReader Professional Editor's Review

When you deal with lots of printed pages that need to be digitized, using OCR software becomes a necessity. These apps save you from the trouble of photocopying bulk amount of text and documents and instead store everything in popular digital formats in your computer or storage media. However, not all OCR software offers the same level of accuracy and precision. If price is less important than accuracy and performance of such apps, you may consider using ABBYY Finereader Professional Edition. The tenth incarnation of this OCR app offers near accurate digitizing of text and has speedy conversion capability as well.

The app can be used on PCs running Windows XP and later versions. It is not very resource hungry and installation procedure is quite simple. Using the app, you can turn printed pages to Word documents, HTML pages and other formats without many hassles. Hardly any other contender can match Finereader’s capacity to recognize text, tables and layouts from source materials. The Professional version is the lowest priced and business users can opt for the more feature rich and costlier corporate version.

Its responsive and lucid interface wins the app some brownie points when compared to other contenders. The main window of ABBYY FineReader Professional comprises of a column where scanned document thumbnails are displayed. There are two panes where current page is displayed in larger preview and its "read" version is shown. At the top part of interface, there is a main toolbar which can also be hidden. Overall, the app is quite user friendly and you need not search the help files to learn how to use its various features. When the Finereader application is launched, you are greeted with standard automated task list- scanning into apps like Excel and Word or converting a digital camera picture to word etc. You may also scan to a HTML file directly.

ABBYY FineReader Professional can open PDF files and some other image types for OCR. It can also acquire documents through TWAIN compliant scanner. The app is equipped with several image processing features like noise removal, cropping, orientation correction and so on. It can save in PDF, HTML and RTF formats. When it comes to OCR performance, the app gives little reason to grudge about. Whether you scan books, picture and text sample or magazines with small sized font, the app will not let you down. Only occasionally, you may come across minor formatting issues. If the app cannot detect a segment of text or table, it will be highlighted. However, it is not equipped with handwriting recognition feature.

One important and useful feature of ABBYY FineReader Professional is Screenshot Reader. With it you can quickly get a block of text to clipboard or Ms Word without requiring the entire app. Finereader offers precise page editing tools like eraser that helps eliminating errors in OCR tasks. After OCR is executed, Finereader opens a capable spell-checking tool. The app still lacks some advanced features found in rivals like Omnipage Professional though.

Positive Points:
• User friendly interface.
• Feature rich app, near accurate OCR results.
• Wide format support for output.
• Unique screen reading feature.

Negative Points:
• Lacks some advanced features present in rivals.
• Faces difficulty in converting complex pages with layouts and images.

There is no denying the near accurate performance and superior ease of use offered by ABBYY Finereader Professional. When it comes to mainstream OCR tasks, it outshines most of the category rivals by a large margin. The file format support of the app is satisfying and its screen reader feature is quite handy. Only when it deals with complex documents with plenty of images and layout, a few errors can crop up. However, that is not a deal breaker for majority of users. For home users and small office setups, ABBYY Finereader Professional can be the ideal OCR app, despite its steep price tag.

Rating: 3/5
