Paper documents have two main problems - you can't easily edit them and they are delicate. ABBYY FineReader is designed to easily solve this problem by digitizing paper media. It can also handle PDF documents, giving you the freedom to do what you want with them.
ABBYY FineReader is an advanced program that uses optical character recognition on scans or photos for text, layout, tables and even the language of the document. The results can be edited within the program, or exported to Word.
Compatible with all scanners, and cameras too, ABBYY FineReader is extremely easy to use. It detects any connected devices, so you can scan in a document or choose an image from a camera or your hard drive. The image is then read, and two windows open. One shows the original image, and the other the digitized editable version.
The performance of ABBYY FineReader is impressive. We tested a document photographed with an iPhone, and it was converted perfectly, with no errors. There are sometimes issues with images, but in general ABBYY FineReader will give you extremely good results. You can export files to PDF, DOC, XLS or HTML.
If you want to effectively digitize paper doncuments, ABBYY FineReader is an excellent and easy to use choice.
