Well if you have one of those scanners you probably have a
stripped down abbyy sprint or omnipage anyway.
In the end I decided to get fine reader 15.
Its extremely accessible, a few buttons and a couple list
My main issues are that combo boxes such as those in options do
not read when scroling, and the menus especially the file menu lag
quite a load and some items don't read or don't always read though
those that do do have shortcut keys.
All dialogs seem to work extremely well and it was worth the
Output of the ocr is quite good.
Sadly the ocr editer ariea is not really that accessible but even
so its an improvement from v 14 at any rate.
I am also on the offer and marketing list so if there are any
promos who knows.
My brother scanner also has paperport which looks to be a full
version and may or may not work for me I havn't really tried that
though it looks accessible.

I use a Canon Flatbed scanner, Canon
CanoScan LiDE 120, and the Canon software itself traps the
scanned image as Jason describes here. That image file appears
to be perfect, according to those who receive it from me as an
image .PDF. On those occasions when I need access to the image
file myself, I save it and open it with abbyyy Finereader
which then converts it to whatever readable format I need.
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.

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.
