    "This is a great value for the money, minus some flaws."

    November 18, 2013  |   By Repro-GB

    Version: ABBYY FineReader Express Edition 8.3

    Pros

    Saves time and effort when it comes to translating data. When deadlines are critical I have been fortunate enough to utilize this software to streamline my production time, and get to my leisure sooner.

    Cons

    Has its flaws, script, handwritten or even italic text were issues at some point. I cannot trust the translation or conversion of the text data 100%, because I found I had to tweak much of the copy when unusual fonts or punctuations were involved.

    Summary

    Overall, this is worth its value, not perfect... but its better than re-typing data from scratch and toiling over piles of documents that need to be digitized into editable text. I highly recommend!

    "Amazingly accurate, even from dim copy"

    August 13, 2013  |   By Stuart Leitch

    Version: ABBYY FineReader Express Edition 8.3

    Pros

    I gave FineReader two pages of what looks like a second-generation photocopy, with some of the text right at the edge of the page. It transcribed this with very errors.

    Cons

    FineReader doesn't interact perfectly with my system. (2012 iMac, OS 10.8.4, Konica Minolta magicolor 4690mf printer/scanner). Two problems:

    1, FineReader can't access my scanner when Preview is running.
    2. Sometimes my scanner driver doesn't work well with FineReader. FineReader offers a choice of TWAIN or ICA. When I choose TWAIN the scans fails, the scanner reports "PC scan cancel". When I choose ICA it works correctly.

    Summary

    For $99 this is great software. But you may nee to fiddle with it to make it work.
