Multi-page scanning group
Scan multiple images Select this option if your document consists of several pages.
Image preprocessing group
Straighten text lines Straighten distorted text lines at the image margins.
Note: This option is applicable for images taken by digital cameras only.
Detect image orientation (during recognition) Detects the page orientation and, if necessary, restores the page's standard orientation (the page text should be read top-down and text lines should be horizontal).
Note: Page orientation is detected during recognition.
Split dual pages Use this option to split the images of book pages into two separate batch pages. The recognition quality will increase, and you'll be able to save each page to a separate file in this case.
Ask for page number before adding page to the batch If you set this option, ABBYY FineReader will ask you to specify the page number before it adds it to the batch; useful if, say, you're scanning many double-sided pages sorted by their numbers or if you are scanning all even pages first, and then the odd pages.
