Abbyy FineReader 10
Over time, we continually upgrade our equipment to meet the ever demanding processing needs of our customers. Recently, we purchased a new Intel i7 machine for increased OCR processing speed. We are required, by one of our clients, to use Abbyy FineReader to produce thousands of PDF text searchable files on a monthly basis. We have been using FineReader 8 for several years now, as we and our client were happy with the OCR accuracy and the processing speed. Our new i7 machine is running Windows 7 64 bit and FineReader 8 will not run on a 64 bit machine (according to Abbyy tech support). We requested a trial version of FineReader 10 from Abbyy that would allow us to process thousands of pages daily for 15 days so that we can have an idea if it will meet our needs.
After just two days of processing, we are very pleased with the results. We have implemented the "hot folder" option so we can continually process files in the background. The accuracy is great and our client is very pleased with the results. FineReader 10 is an excellent product.
Great job Abbyy!
