ocr solutions

 

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.

Gene
 

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?

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.

Rich

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 morning,

I have not used abby so cant speak to that, but text cloner is complete accessible from what I can see.

You can even download a demo of it from their site.

Let me know  if otherwise.

1 - The last version is from 2013, it seems...

2 - The trial downloads page is out of the air and the domain for sale...

3 - Could be already closed the company?

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.

Yeah and aparently their actual domain to get things is parked for now.

Looking at the prices from another site, they have a scan and read etc, I am not saving much if I just stay with mainstream software like abbyy.

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.

Hmph.

Well thats sort of decided it for me then.

I have been buying and going with abbyy for ages, I will probably stay where I am then.

Eventually this stuff will just not work and while I really like k1000 and may still eventually buy it, if I am going to buy something expensive, I'd much buy as much mainstream software with specialised addons or something rather than spending a lot of cash on stuff that no one knows or worse can't help me with that I have to doodle with.

Eventually I'd like one of those docuscans or eyepal devices but thats for later.

I can't have em all, and my next purchice is a dish smart tv module for my crappy non smart tv which will cost less than a new, bigger tv which will not fit in my room.

Hmph, another reason to maybe not use jaws, to be honest, if nvda could have some scanner addon which could use finereader engine and others I'd probably buy it, I mean I'd like a standalone program to but still.

It seems the best way forward is mainstream software then.

I'd like to know if those that use omnipage especially the later versions and the ultimate version especially find it better than abbyy or whatever.

I have a user staying on abyy 12 because its accessible, however, it means I am using older software which will probably go out of date.

There was a time 3 or so years back when the network relied on dragon naturally speaking and an offer/add came up from nuance about omnipage and a rediculous offer on ultimate but I never took that.

Open book hasn't been updated for years and I don't think that FS is
planning on updating it any time soon.

There is but it only runs on windows 7 which is going to be discontinued in 48 hours (two days). OCR in NVDA is built in on windows 10. If you try to do insert R desktop or caps lock R laptop and your laptop or desktop runs windows 7 it will say, Windows 10 OCR not available.

Hmph, another reason to maybe not use jaws, to be honest, if nvda could
have some scanner addon which could use finereader engine and others I'd
probably buy it, I mean I'd like a standalone program to but still.

It seems the best way forward is mainstream software then.

I'd like to know if those that use omnipage especially the later
versions and the ultimate version especially find it better than abbyy
or whatever.

I have a user staying on abyy 12 because its accessible, however, it
means I am using older software which will probably go out of date.

There was a time 3 or so years back when the network relied on dragon
naturally speaking and an offer/add came up from nuance about omnipage
and a rediculous offer on ultimate but I never took that.

Hmmm can we use windows ocr outside nvda, and do any other windows programs use the windows ocr?

That's strange that it would be in 7 and not ten.
And no, win 7 is not being discontinued, it is not being fully supported.
