Re: Windows OCR Programs for jpg and pdf files
I believe they both have demos. Omnipage had a bug for years, perhaps more than a decade. I don't know if it has been corrected. When decolumnizing two or more columns of print on a page or when decolumnizing two pages scanned as though it was one page, parts of sentences would be misplaced. Fine Reader never had this bug. I see no reason to assume that Omnipage is generally better. It may be roughly equivalent in terms of quality but if that bug still remains, that is a serious detraction, especially since a lot of PDF documents have more than one column that is going to be decolumnized.
But if both have demos and you try them, be sure you use some PDF documents you know have at least two columns that must be decolumnized.

Thank you adrian. I've heard of OmniPage, and remember it being the defacto for many before Finereader came along.
All suggestions are welcome.
