ABBYY FineReader Express Edition for Mac is a highly accurate and easy-to-use multi-lingual OCR application designed specifically for Mac users. Based on ABBYY's intelligent document recognition technologies, FineReader Express for Mac quickly turns any scanned paper document, PDF files and digital camera images into editable and searchable formats while keeping the original layout and formatting in tact.
Unmatched accuracy of text recognition and layout retention
FineReader Express for Mac delivers outstanding accuracy when converting a variety of document types into popular editable and searchable formats, such as RTF, XLS, HTML and searchable PDF. It performs high-quality results even on difficult-to-read images like faxes, images taken with digital cameras and documents scanned at low resolution. It also precisely recreates formatting elements of original documents, such as tables, graphics, columns, bullets and numbering. When analyzing a document, the application automatically detects three types of areas: text, image and table areas, which ensures accurate layout retention. If necessary, areas can also be manually selected and corrected before recognition.
One-click conversion tasks
FineReader Express for Mac comes with four pre-defined QuickTasks for the most common document conversion procedures, including "convert to text document", "convert to spreadsheet document", "convert to HTML document" and "convert to searchable PDF". QuickTasks allows documents to be opened, recognized and saved in a specified format with just a single click of the mouse.
Intelligent re-creation of tables and spreadsheets
FineReader Express for Mac automatically detects tables in original documents and precisely reconstructs them in the resulting files. In addition, this intelligent software provides special tools for editing table areas in documents.
Ideal tool for PDF conversion
Mac users who work with PDF documents will find this an invaluable tool. FineReader Express for Mac converts any type of PDF document into popular formats for further editing, repurposing or archiving. It can also be used to convert image-only PDFs to a searchable PDF format.
Digital camera OCR
It is easy to convert documents captured with a digital camera because FineReader Express for Mac can easily convert them into text files. Go beyond the capabilities offered by traditional scanning devices, like capturing text from large posters, banners and timetables on the street, or capture pages from thick, bound documents such as books, which are typically hard to scan.
Multiple image processing and merging
FineReader Express for Mac can open and process several document images simultaneously and then merge and save them as a single file in a specified format. This feature saves time and effort when converting pages of books, magazines and any multi-page documents. It's also useful when combining several PDFs in a single file for compiling a report or other larger document.
FineReader Express for Mac has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that makes working with the software simple, convenient and efficient - regardless of the tasks performed.
