Abbyy Debuts Professional OCR Tool for Mac Users [Professional Services Close - Up]

(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Abbyy, a provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies, has announced FineReader Pro for Mac, a professional OCR (Optical Character Recognition) application for efficient document scanning and conversion on the Mac platform.

According to a release, the new application allows Mac users to edit, share, archive and search through their documents by turning them into electronic file formats, as well as effortlessly copy and quote text from scans, PDFs and digital photos.

"Professional grade OCR solutions have not previously been available for the Mac platform, leaving many users to have to deal with scaled down feature sets and miss out on many of the workflow benefits enabled by OCR technology," said Ivan Bodyagin, director of the FineReader Products Department at ABBYY. "FineReader Pro for Mac is designed to provide the functionality and performance to support a wide spectrum of needs, from casual document conversion tasks to rather complex projects, meaning Mac users can finally realize the full benefits of OCR technology." Aimed to simplify everyday work with documents and images, Abbyy noted FineReader Pro for Mac streamlines tasks which have historically been time-consuming for Mac users. The solution provides handy tools for scanning documents and converting images of documents such as scans, photographs and PDFs into formats.

In addition, it allows users to process and recognize only selected areas on a document to quickly copy and quote information they need without having to process the entire document. FineReader Pro for Mac can also be effectively used to prepare documents for use by various text-to-speech utilities.
