None to speak of.
I wanted to capture text from my forum without getting all the code that occurs when I copy it. This seemed to fit the requirement. I figured version 9.1 might have fixed some of the problems already mentioned. Big mistake.
Tried to contact customer service - no reply.
Now it won't uninstall!
So annoying, words fail me.
Nothing good to say
Cant do any OCR properly
Impossible to uninstall !!!
This program should not be allowed !!!
Simple selection tool does not require and file to be created and opened. Recognises layout columns and converts to plain text. Recognises slashes in dates.
Appends pointless help tips to all your pasted text while the software is running. (I assume these disappear when registered)
March 7th 2011. I'm using this to read text from some older business software and SAP logistics pages (both of which have sections of text that cannot be copied from, only viewed on screen) I need to transfer the info into a messaging system that only accepts plain text. The software has to deal with grey backgounds, different coloured text and dates/numbers in several formats.
Having tested other OCR programs, all had real problems with the formatting and most lost the columns, with screen OCR I find the text layout almost identical to the screen image and totally legible and it seems to ignore the background.
21day trial period is 20 days longer than you need to realize this product doesn't work
Didn't work on even things I could just copy and paste like a MS Word document, couldn't uninstall
I'll be glad when Microsoft bundles some sort of free OCR tool with an OS and I won't have to deal with software like this.
- Accurately copies numbers from a picture
- Easy to use
- May not do what YOU need, based on other reviews here
I just needed a way to copy a number from a program that displays a measurement value as an image. I don't have any evidence to refute all the negative reviews here, but this program does what I needed perfectly. I will be registering a copy.
didn't work at all for the scanned document i was trying to copy.
This works really well on plain text. Select from window seemed to work best.
Doesn't work on everything.
It can't read PDFs.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) implies that the tools takes whatever is on the screen, a bit-map image for example, and intelligibly interprets the characters as true OCR software would do.
There are NO positives here. Crude grammar errors, like in the menu "NO THIS MENU", which most likely should be "noT this menu"
Does not work!!!
Could have more visual explanation. One has to guess what the help says. Being a programmer I can find out what the helps may imply. However, IT DOES NOT WROK. Produces jumbled text. NOT a real OCR.
This program doesn't work at all. I made a try scanning from real text, from the program's Help System, and all I got was characters like this:
:. . - tu - t o -.:`. . :: -.ú-:. .: - , -. , :, :: . , - `i` - |`i: : :::' -i-: ::D -,i:: : :: : ::D
