If your text contains many special terms, abbreviations, and proper names, adding these terms to the user dictionary will improve OCR quality. For each added word, ABBYY FineReader generates all possible word forms to allow the program to reliably recognize it in its various forms (plural, verb, etc.).
To add a word to the dictionary while checking the spelling:
In the Primary form dialog box enter the following information:
Important! Paradigms can only be created for words added in the following languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German (old and new spelling), Russian, Ukrainian, and French.
When adding English words, you have the option of entering them in their uninflected form rather than creating a paradigm. On the Advanced tab, click Spell Checker Settings… and select Skip prompting for word forms (English dictionary only).
To add or remove a word while viewing the dictionary:
The program will notify you if the desired word is already in the dictionary. You may then wish to view its paradigm. If the paradigm is incorrect, create a new paradigm by clicking the Add… button in the Add Word dialog box.
You can import user dictionaries created in previous versions of ABBYY FineReader (versions 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 and 9.0 are supported).
