ABBYY FineReader Professional 9.0 is a powerful optical character recognition (OCR) software that allows you to convert paper documents and image files into fully editable text documents. In the 9.0 version, overall accuracy has been increased especially on documents containing tables, legal documents, multilingual documents, and digital camera captured images. This incredible program uses the intelligent Adaptive Document Recognition Technology (ADRT) that analyzes the entire document rather than each page individually, and precisely reconstructs it with original layout, style and formatting attributes It identifies various parts of document structure such as heading, body text, columns, tables, graphics, footnotes and page numbers and reconstructs them as native Microsoft Office formatting elements for easy editing. The supported output formats are PDF, PDF/A, HTML, Microsoft Word XML, DOC/DOCX, RTF, XLS/ XLSX, PPT, DBF, CSV, TXT, and LIT. What is more, you can launch ABBYY FineReader from within Microsoft Word, scan a paper document or open document image, convert image to text and put the recognized text into the document you are currently working on without leaving Word. The program is easy to use with a simple and intuitive user interface that will guide novice users by means of 'wizards', while still allowing more experienced users to get at the options and settings pages. This version is no longer available.
