Why are you disappointed? Also, unless this has changed, Text Cloner didn't use as good OCR engines. It had two major selling points, one that it is a very simple program and very easy to use, and two, that it is inexpensive. In today's environment, I'm not sure either carachteristic matters much any more and if the program is still more simple, it may not be worth giving up the added accuracy of products like Fine Reader and Omnipage. Those are questions those who use newer versions of these programs will have to discuss to get current information because things can change so much and so fast in programs.

Well good I brought text cloner when I did then.

Its not been updated since 2011 but yeah, at least I have textcloner now.

I am quite disappointed with abbyyy and their latest finereader product.

I do use ocr and scanning but not as much as I usually did.

Interestingly when I checked you can still buy the product with paypal.

The company you buy from seems to be something completely different but I am happy I got the program.

I don't use something like this to continuously update anyway.

Emailed support and they said they are permanently closed. Actually said"Sorry we are pertinently closed Does pertinently mean temporary due to Covid:?I attached their reply.

I'm on vacation so will try the support number I found in another message.

Text cloner support

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.

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
