ABBYY Announces Enhanced Functionality and New Pricing Approach for Its FineReader Online OCR Service

July 23, 2014

ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and services, today announced the new release of its FineReader Online, a cloud-based service providing users access to ABBYY’s award-winning OCR (optical character recognition) technology for document management and conversion, from anywhere, anytime. In addition to new document conversion features and renovated interface, FineReader Online now offers more flexible pricing approach with a variety of page volume and processing time options to choose from. It now allows regular customers to convert documents more intensively for the same price and casual users to benefit from extended free bonuses.


“Launched in 2010, the ABBYY’s online OCR service is now hosting hundreds of thousands of people looking for document conversion services,” said Ivan Bodyagin, director of the FineReader Products Department at ABBYY. “Over 65 percent of FineReader Online customers convert up to 200 document pages every month using the OCR service for their work needs. Another 5 percent convert from 500 to 1000 pages per month. We tried to make our service more suitable for them first of all, yet not forgetting the needs of our more casual users.”


The updated FineReader Online provides more convenient and intuitive document recognition and conversion functions, with all processed files stored on a user account for 2 weeks. Additionally, customers can now merge several files into one document during the processing, with the possibility to combine files of different formats in the required order. It now allows users to quickly convert a scanned book to ePub or fb2 formats for reading on mobile devices, and save recognition results to Microsoft® PowerPoint. It also now supports export to the Microsoft OneDrive™ storage.


FineReader Online is a secure, cloud-based service that converts scanned or photographed images of documents into popular file formats, including Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PDF. Leveraging the award-winning ABBYY OCR technology, the solution accurately reads texts in 42 languages and supports recognition of multilingual and multi-page files, while accurately re-creates formatting elements such as bulleted and numbered lists, columns, and tables. FineReader Online requires no additional software to be installed and is accessible to any web user, no matter which PC, laptop, mobile device or operating system they use.
