Enhanced OCR Accuracy
ABBYY FineReader 8.0 offers an overall accuracy improvement with considerably increased accuracy for low-quality documents such as paper documents scanned at low resolution and faxes. These types of documents are more difficult for OCR software to read, and ABBYY FineReader now handles them with greater accuracy, delivering up to 30 percent improvement on faxes. Integrated support for Microsoft Word custom dictionaries and the ability to use these dictionaries in the recognition process ensure correct recognition of user-specific words.
Digital Camera OCR
ABBYY FineReader 8.0 breaks new ground with new special processing algorithms for document images taken with digital cameras. An intelligent PDF conversion process determines whether or not text is embedded, examines the integrity of the text layer and makes a decision as to whether to extract the text or apply OCR. When converting PDF files, FineReader captures PDF document properties defined by the author, such as Title, Subject, Author, and Keywords.
Other features include fast mode recognition, recognition and reproduction of hyperlinks, a screenshot reader, new RTF/DOC saving settings, a new Automated Manager that performs the multiple steps of document or PDF conversion with a single mouse click, and more.
