Re: OmniPage Professional vs ABBYY FineReader Professional

Thanks everyone for all the ideas. I did install the demo of the latest FineReader but don't find it all that intuitive to use. I mainly want to use it with my scanner. Can't figure how to intigrate it with the Plustek scanner utility yet so now must contact Plustek.

Now I know why people by OpenBook or Kurzweil 1000.

I'm going to give the online version of FineReader a try. Wish Nuance had one too.

I haven't used Abbey, but I'm extremely happy with OmniPage 18. I found
installation and registration difficult and had to call Nuance for
assistance. As I write, I don't recall what the obstacle was. But once past
that hurdle, all I have to do is highlight the PDF file, press the
applications key and arrow down to OmniPage. I press enter, and I'm
presented with a list of options, which include MS Word, WordPerfect, RTF,
text, and so on. I press enter on my choice, and OmniPage proceeds to
perform OCR. A new file is created in the chosen format.

The results are better than anything I tried before, including earlier
versions of OmniPage. But again, I haven't compared it to Abbey.

Which works best with Jaws? Special on now for OmniPage Professional 18.
Have been using ABBYY Sprint that came with my scanner but haven't tried
there pro version yet.
