I like the many available languages and a large number of functions that allow us to quickly recognize significant amounts of text. There is integration with popular cloud services.

ABBYY is the best OCR software I've worked with, overall, my experience has been very good, especially when working with converting tables to OCR content.

Cons
The biggest problem this software product have is a price. Also marketing/promotional reasoning about it is so lame.

There will always be document parts which will be badly recognized and you'll have to update some parts of the content manually.

The program used to be very bad. Auto brightness and a preview of the result did not work there.

Best Overall PDF software I've found.

Reviewed a month ago

For the price, still the best program out there, and much improved in recent years. Great alternative to the terribly priced and overwrought Adobe.

Pros

Ease of Use in combining and editing documents. Simple to adjust, remove, merge, and edit text.

Cons

OCR function not wholly accurate, but no program is. Image adjustment is slower and has a steep learning curve. I wish you could work on doc image without first running OCR (adds time). Steeper learning curve on OCR. Commenting on docs not as clean/clear to follow along as on other programs.

ABBYY FineReader PDF: good, but not great, not yet

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

FineReader PDF appears to be a complete re-write and works well with macOS Monterey 12.4. It is extremely flexible in terms of output options when performing OCR on a PDF.

Cons

The previous macOS Fine Reader product allowed the user to specify, on one page, a region to be analyzed, and that region could be saved as a template of sorts that could then be applied to multiple pages in a single step, saving considerable time. That is, you'd draw the region once, and apply it to the remaining pages (if desired), which could be hundreds of pages. Now, we either have to accept the...

Best of the Best

Reviewed a month ago

There are many PDF files that have different way of aligning the Prices of their Catalogs. ABBYY was the closest vs others application to aligned them in a proper way and less editing. Saving us time and process.

Pros

Just how easy it is to convert PDF files to Excel.

Cons

We didn't have any issues. Everything was there what we normally need it.

Game Changer

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

I bought Abbyy to use as an OCR for volunteer work but it turned out to be so much more. It’s become my default PDF viewer as well. I love the ability to add and delete pages to any PDF.

Cons

I really haven’t found anything I’m not happy with.
