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

Customers Say

We highly recommend it...

We were on the lookout for better programs. So our IT specialist tried several programs and ABBYY FineReader topped the list in accuracy and ease. It delivered the precision we needed. I use it to convert forms into editable and form-fillable PDFs. We highly recommend it every time somebody comes in needing scanning software. I’ve had nothing but positive feedback on our end.
