I haven't tried Kurzweil for many years. If they are still updating the OCR in the program, it should be roughly equivalent, as I found it to be in the past. I don't know how you might intend to use the program but it isn't worth spending about 1,000 dollars unless you specifically intend to use features other than the OCR in Kurzweil. Its been a long time since I looked at price information for Omnipage and Fine Reader but they are much less expensive, being off the shelf programs and not having to amortize their development costs over a very small user base.

I have mostly seen comments on Omnipage and Fine Reader so far. What
do you think about Kurzweil and how does its accuracy and feature set
compare with these? Thoughts appreciated.

I hope I can get it but I haven't even had a chance to try it. My
experience with ABBY in the past wasn't so good.

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
