ABBYY FineReader advantages
Fast and accurate recognition
The OCR system used in ABBYY FineReader lets users quickly and
accurately recognize and retain the source formatting of any
document (including text on background images, colored text on
colored backgrounds, text wrapped around an image, etc.).
Thanks to ABBYY's adaptive document recognition technology
(ADRT®), ABBYY FineReader can analyze and process a document
as a whole, instead of page by page. This approach retains the
source document's structure, including formatting, hyperlinks,
e-mail addresses, headers and footers, image and table captions,
page numbers, and footnotes.
ABBYY FineReader can recognize documents written in one or
several of 189 languages, including Arabic, Vietnamese,
Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Hebrew. ABBYY FineReader also
features auto-detection of document languages.
What's more, ABBYY FineReader is largely immune to printing
defects and can recognize texts printed in virtually any font.
The program also includes a wide range of options for output
data: documents can be saved in a variety of formats, sent by
e-mail, or transferred to other applications for further
