What Does It Do?

FineReader converts scanned paper documents, digital images of texts and image-only PDFs into actionable formats such as Microsoft® Word®, Excel® or searchable PDFs, enabling you to quote or entirely reuse text and table content without retyping.

FineReader is powered by award winning ABBYY OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. OCR, or text recognition, uses intelligent algorithms that convert images into editable text, preserving the original layout and formatting of the initial document.

ABBYY products are a real Swiss Army Knife...

When I bought ABBYY FineReader Brazilian Edition, I couldn’t imagine how it would facilitate my work. I’m an independent consultant, that’s why speed and precision are very important for me. Most programs are too sophisticated and not user-friendly. ABBYY software is intuitive and easy-to-use and the results have an exceptional quality. I have two more products from ABBYY: ABBYY Screenshot Reader and ABBYY Business Card Reader 2.0 – they’ve made my life 1000% easier! Previously, I did not know what to do with the huge amount of business cards I received, and I was losing them quite often. Now I can simply scan and get them already added to my Outlook. ABBYY products are a real Swiss Army Knife. Thank you.
