Batches are the main data depository in ABBYY FineReader, and
contain scanned images, recognized text and other data. Most ABBYY
FineReader settings are batch settings: scanning, recognition,
saving options, etc. User patterns, user languages and user
language groups are also property of a batch. New batches can be
assigned the default batch settings, the settings of the current
batch, or settings saved in an *.fbt file.
