ABBYY will work with a hardware scanner as well. Alternatively, you could scan the pages to images in a PDF file before running the OCR process. Actually, some scanners generate PDF output directly, saving the file to a USB drive or sending it to you via email. However, so far as I know, none of these devices is likely to be very accessible. In my work environment, they are the modern alternative to photocopiers – someone can just process a series of pages and receive a PDF via email directly from the device.

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

 

Quentin.
