Hi, Gene. They may not be licenced to use ABBY Fine Reader for both, and may need to pay to have both licences.

Hi, Chris. The fact that Vispero gives us a choice between omnipage and
the Microsoft OCR engine shows that at least at times, the Microsoft OCR
engine may give better results. If this were not the case, Vispero would
have no reason to include both OCR engines.

Jaws is using omnipage, likely a lot better than anything MS includes
for free.

There is an option in JAWS to use Microsoft's default OCR engine
with JAWS convenient OCR. Is it a better OCR engine than the one
that comes with JAWS?
