You can also go to the list where you will find a list of page numbers.
1, 2 etc. The pages you have scanned.
Press contextkey or shift-f10 on a digit and chose: save pages to or
Ctrl-tab and tab are keys to use in finereader. Maybe sw3itch to an othere
program with alt-tab and back to finereader.

Firstly, I didn't said that FineReader was fully accessible!

I just asked what was the problem with the acessibility of the menus...

Regarding the Editor window it is somehow accessible, but it is a strange

I have tried with a document, recognized almost completly correct to TXT
format, but with errors on the Editor window... And trying to correct in
that window is not possible...

By instance, in the Editor appears M RIA instead of MARIA, and I was
unable to correct it...

After the recognition, press Control Tab and then Shift Control Tab...
Maybe not the first time, but you will land in a edit area...

Hi, Rui,

I am using FineReader 11 because I recognised its value as an OCR
machine. The menus are perfectly accessible. However I cannot browse the
document resulting from OCR nor can I make any edits to the document. The
editor does not seem to be accessible. As you do find this program to be
fully accessible, could you suggest how I might use the editor and view my
pages in FineReader with NVDA?

All the best,

What accessibility problems with FineReader menus?

I am using FineReader 14, and I have already installed FineReader 15 for
costummers, and didn't notice any accessibility problems with the menus...

Well there are accessibility issues with the menus on abbyy.

Yeah textcloner pro uses the iris engine.

I only need ocr for the occasional bill or other typed document.

I have knfb reader for some other stuff, and for the rest if
balabolka or codex can't read it then they are probably not worth my

I do hope that they do get this fixed.

I have not invested in omnipage as such but still.

Even though I emailed finereader support well abbyy support about
this issue with menus and delays in nvda, it appears that they never
fixed it.

It took ages till I even got an update and then I asked support
about my access fixes only to be told they were not completed.

You'd think they would actually, 1. give a higher priority to get
those fixed and also update sooner.

In sort I really want a program that is reliable and has good support.

As for omnipage, its not even owned by nuance.

Aparently the best abbyy version is v12 but while yes I have my
registration code I no longer have links that work for old abbyy 12.

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

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

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.

I was going to try Text Cloner Pro but the company seems to be closed.

Text Cloner Pro - Premier AT Home

Start downloading link takes me a log in page with no option to join.

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

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

Kind regards
