Easily transform paper documents, PDFs and digital photos of text into editable and searchable files for Mac
Impressive - Not cheap and I did wonder if it was going to be worth the money but I am glad I bought this.Hugely impressive OCR capabilities and the ability to create new text documents out of PDFs is an awesome addition to my tool kit and workflows. Highly recommended.

Precise text recognition and layout retention are critical for maximum productivity. And FineReader Pro’s accuracy is currently the highest in the industry: up to 99.8%, according to ABBYYs internal testing. This means it delivers editable digital copies of documents that precisely match your originals’ text and layouts – ready for immediate re-use, updating and sharing without the need for manual retyping or correction.
ABBYYs innovative Adaptive Document Recognition Technology® (ADRT®) precisely re-creates the structure and formatting of multi-page documents. This includes text size and font styles, tables and diagrams, columns, headers, footers, footnotes, tables of contents, page numbers and more. The result: Your converted documents look exactly like the originals, have native formatting attributes and are easy to change and update!
FineReader Pro recognizes text in more than 180 languages
Includes European and Asian languages, and Hebrew and Arabic. Plus, it does so in any combination of languages.
FineReader’s ease of use means you’ll be working productively right from the get-go! A highly intuitive interface guides you through the entire process of scanning and converting documents. And predefined Quick Tasks mean you’ll get jobs done with just a few mouse clicks —no time spent on familiarizing yourself with the software. Even better, FineReader identifies document characteristics (e.g. layout, languages, etc.) automatically – giving you the option of adjusting settings manually if needed. Plus, FineReader is Section 508 compliant – ensuring accessibility.
Easily save text recognition results in the format of your choice: as text documents (DOCX, ODT, RTF), spreadsheets (XSLX), searchable, editable and other PDF and PDF/A documents, PPTX presentations, HTML, or e-book (EPUB®, FB2) formats. You can also send results directly from FineReader to applications including Apple Pages, Apple Numbers, Microsoft® Word, Excel® and many others.
With a few mouse clicks you can turn paper documents into searchable compressed PDF files for archiving. Information in such archives can be easily retrieved at any time you need it by using keyword search, while document compression reduces the amount of disk space used. You can also save files to a PDF/A format for long-term archiving.
FineReader Pro enables you to add document properties; it can also create tagged PDFs optimized for portable and screen reader devices, and creates PDF outlines for fast navigation across a document.
FineReader takes you beyond the limitations of traditional scanning by enabling you to use your digital camera or smartphone as a scanner! Just take a snapshot of any document you’d like to OCR. FineReader applies sophisticated image pre-processing tools to correct image distortions for best text recognition, then recognizes and converts the document into the format of your choice.
You can also correct photos of documents manually in FineReader to achieve even better recognition results. Image Editor enables you to correct brightness and contrast, straighten curved text lines, correct trapezium distortions, reduce ISO noise and remove motion blur, split dual pages, crop images, and more.
FineReader makes it fast and easy to digitize and make multiple copies of documents — plus, it offers image processing functions that improve the visual quality of original documents. So if you have a paper document with content you’d like to share, you can just scan and print as many copies as you need while removing “noise” and other defects. Or create a PDF that you can send as an email attachment, or upload it to the cloud.
Convert books and printed documents into fully formatted electronic files optimized for reading on portable devices in the popular FB2 and EPUB formats.
FineReader Pro provides a variety of advanced features that enable full control over the OCR process and its output. These include managing document pages, size/quality ratio control, document export and layout retention, editing complex tables (including the ability to manage text languages, text orientation and pictures within table cells) and more. All of which can be fine-tuned according to your needs.
