Editors' Review

Don't let Readiris Pro's simplicity fool you; behind its approachable exterior lies a mighty optical-character-recognition engine. The program performed very well in our speed and quality tests, even when we gave it text with complex formatting (tables, columns, and multiple fonts, for instance). It did have some problems recognizing images, but you can mark those areas for better results. Readiris Pro supports almost all Western fonts and can recognize mixed texts. It can output OCR files in several formats, including DOC, OpenOffice, HTML, and PDF. The clear and convenient interface has large buttons for the most common operations. The $129.99 price reflects the program's corporate orientation, but Readiris Pro is a fine choice for small offices with serious OCR needs.

"Perfect to convert PDF to Word!"

I needed a solution to avoid retyping my PDF files into MS Word.
Readiris not only retypes the text from my PDF files, it also recreates the layout of my document! Very useful!!


The user interface could be a bit more friendly. Yet, once you kow how to use it, it works fine!


Great software to be added in your toolbox!

"Good software, with some really annoying features"

Good character recognition, fast, able to read from various inputs such as pdf, image files, etc.


This one annoying feature has me pulling my hair out. After my file has been scanned by the software, it automatically starts to "recognize" it. Every single, tiny edit to a text zone results in a re-reading of the text, it "recognizes" it again. So you move one pixel of the zone, and must wait till it has recognized it. Then another tiny edit, and again a waiting period while it recognizes it. There is no way to turn this off in my basic version (not corporate). It makes editing horribly time-consuming.

I'm learning that it's best to use or convert to images and do all your edits with an image editor first. Then hope you don't need to redefine a text zone and go into the ReadIris Pro "waiting room".

No more page limitation (finally!)
The ability to convert your documents and books to ePub or audio files (new features).
The new interface is intuitive and now retains your habits (language, export and target selections)
The text editor (new feature) allows to edit your documents directly within Readiris.
Readiris is compatible with the scanner I already owned


Deleting pages in a multipage document can be fastidious


I discovered Readiris when it was version 12. This brand-new version 15 is undeniably a huge step forward. New interface, new useful features... And for the first time the ability to edit your text directly within the software. A must-have if you need to convert your paper clutter!
