Re: ocr solutions


 

well to be honest, I want to either stay mainstream, or switch to something thats actually updated comercially.

K1000 was my choice and before nuance got rid of omnipage the ultimate omnipage was my other option.

I was thinking of going to the dolphin product.

Openbook I am unsure of.

I have issues with the company and group that makes jaws and that software, because some things they do don't sit right with me, now and in the past.

Abbyy looks to be something a lot use and its quite good for what it is.

I haven't used Text Cloner for a long time.  When I did, it was inferior to programs like Openbook, Kurzweil, Fine Reader, etc.  But there is a demo and if you try it with a sample of the kinds of material you will be scanning, you will get a good comparison.

Hmmm what is text cloner like and is it more accessible than abbyy.

I like abbyy for what it is and use it a bunch, however, half price for upgrades is still high.

My version will run on win10 nicer than my old 14 does, and I have emailed them about a few issues but future things are always nice.

Good afternoon,

I know two blind people that use tect cloner pro and it is about $139.00 I believe.

It is from premier literacy.

It works very well and is completely accessible.

Let me know if you need any more info.

How old is your OCR program and how well does it work currently?  I haven't followed this for many years but for a good while, I found that upgrades may have improved marginal scanning situations but that much of the time, for most scanning under good conditions, the upgrades made little or no difference. 

 

Or are you upgrading because what you were using doesn't run in Windows 10, which is unlikely?

Hi.

Just wandering what ocr solutions people use.

I use abbyy fine reader and its mostly ok but access wize I have
wandered at it of late.

the latest version will cost me 190 instead of the 300 or so dollars for
a new version and I could easily upgrade it.

Right now omnipage standard costs me 192 nz right now, then again, what
do people use.

I want something that is accessible which will do ocr and scanning,
images, pdfs, paper documents.


Is it worth the upgrade of fine reader or should I switch to omnipage or
what.
