Re: OCR Programs

Ian D. Nichols

Hi Listers,

Re. Abby Fine Reader: I had this program installed on my laptop, although I
never used it. I think it came originally a few years ago from Freedom
Scientific. When I tried to install MS Office 365 on the laptop, it
installed apparently OK, but none of the programs would run. I talked with
an accessibility tech at Microsoft, and, although she seemed rather clueless
and unhelpful at times, she told me that there was a known incompatibility
between Abby and Office 365. After I uninstalled Abby and reinstalled
Office 365, all its components ran well.

I hope that this will help some one.

All the best,


Ian D. Nichols,

I use Abby Finereader. I scan the documents into word documents. It works
pretty good for me.
