Happy New Year!


I see that you are looking for a comparison between Omnipage and Abbyyy Finereader but, for what it is worth, I can report on Abbyyy Finereader 11 where I am having great success with NVDA on Windows 10 all latest versions. I dont have Omnipage.


The application interface of Abbyyy Finereader is not very accesible. This is probably due to the fact that it is so image oriented. However, I use it in command mode and get excellent results. I can easily convert the resulting OCR file into any format such as word, Html, PDF or text, etc. under the Save As option.



All the best,

I was more thinking of OCR to use with a hardware scanner.  Sorry, I didn't expand on that thought originally :)

ABBYY was updated last year. I haven’t yet purchased the upgrade, so can’t comment on the latest version. It handles document formatting well, including headings and footnotes from scanned images of journal articles.

Good morning,


Has anyone compared OCR software lately?   I had someone ask about Omnipage 20.  I know a few people use Abbyy Finereader, but I wasn't sure how they compare or what other options are out there currently.


Kind regards
