Innovative New and Enhanced Features Improve User Experience and Efficiency Throughout Document Digitization Process

MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ABBYY®, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and services, today announced FineReader 12, the newest version of its award-winning Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and document conversion software. FineReader 12 delivers faster document conversion, the ability to quickly open documents of any length while OCR processing runs in the background, and instant recognition of selected text or tables on the page without requiring recognition of the full page. In addition, FineReader 12 offers enhanced OCR accuracy for common business documents and Asian languages, as well as new image enhancement tools enabling users to produce digital copies of documents with even higher visual quality than the originals.

"Serving as a bridge between paper and digital documents, OCR software is one of the essential tools to build an efficient working environment," commented Ivan Bodyagin, director of the FineReader Desktop Products Department at ABBYY. "FineReader 12 was designed to simplify every step of the process for digitizing paper documents including scanning, editing and copying text, and adapting them for searchable archives." 

FineReader 12 delivers intuitive tools for scanning documents and converting images of documents, or any selected areas on them, into editable and searchable electronic formats such as Microsoft® Word, Excel®, PDF, TXT, popular e-book formats and more. In addition, ABBYY's OCR technology delivers outstanding quality when "reading" printed text in any of the 190 supported languages and their combinations. With its unique ABBYY Adaptive Document Recognition Technology (ABBYY ADRT®), FineReader efficiently recreates large, complex documents while maintaining native formatting attributes (e.g. headers, footers, page numbering, table of contents, etc.) across all pages.

In addition, FineReader 12 offers a number of powerful improvements, including:

  • Background OCR for Maximum Efficiency - FineReader 12 offers an innovative document conversion approach that enables users to open, view and start working with documents of any size immediately, rather than requiring the full document to be processed as is common with other solutions. FineReader 12's background OCR saves considerable time by providing access to all document pages at once.
  • Easy Extraction of Data and Text Quotation - With its optimized interface and newly added controls, FineReader 12 enables users to easily copy tables or formatted text from any selected area without the need to recognize the entire document.
  • Seamless Conversion of Tables - FineReader 12 improves table conversion by up to 40 percent*, saving engineers, financial professionals or other specialists significant time and effort when working with numerical data. Additionally, when saving to XLSX format FineReader 12 simplifies the process of converting tables and charts or adding new tables to existing files.
  • Easier Saving and Retrieving Files from the Cloud - FineReader 12 provides easier access to popular cloud storage solutions such as Google Drive™, Dropbox™, SkyDrive® and more. In addition, direct integration with Microsoft SharePoint® Online / Office 365™ facilitates greater document sharing.
  • Visual Quality Enhancement for Scans, Photos and PDF Documents - New PreciseScan technology from ABBYY smoothes pixelated characters on searchable PDFs, improving the visual quality of documents for easier reading, archiving or better printing results. Improved ABBYY Camera OCR enables users to turn photos of documents into scanner-quality images and offers new photo pre-processing functions such as auto crop of multiple images and whitening of the original document's background.
  • Enhanced Hot Folder in FineReader 12 Corporate Edition - Improved Hot Folder function for batch conversion of documents now speeds up overall conversion processes and supports dual-core processing.
  • Windows 8 Compatibility and Gesture Support- ABBYY FineReader 12 is compatible with Windows 8 and utilizes new options provided by the operating system, including the ability to use basic touch gestures to scroll and zoom on laptops with touch screens.

ABBYY FineReader 12 Professional is available immediately through various online stores, selected retail outlets and resellers worldwide. ABBYY FineReader 12 Corporate, designed to meet the needs of mid-to-large businesses and organizations, will become available later in 2014.
