The document input process includes four steps: scanning/opening, reading, spellcheck and saving the recognized text. You can OCR a paper document in one easy step by using an automated task, the Scan&Read or Open&Read commands or let the Scan&Read Wizard guide you through the individual steps of the process.
(Many scanner models require the unit to be turned on before starting your PC.)
Once scanning is complete, the scanned document will appear in the Image window. Then ABBYY FineReader will start reading the image and analyzing its layout. Recognized text will be shown highlighted in blue within the document. The recognized data will also be displayed as editable text in the Text window. After that ABBYY FineReader will send the recognized text to an application of your choice or save the recognized text to a file of a format and location you selected.
If you wish to open and recognize image or PDF files, select one of the menu items:
Open & Read opens image files or PDF files and recognizes them.
PDF/Images To Word opens image files or PDF files, recognizes the images and sends the recognized text to Microsoft Word.
