Pros
Abbyy Fine Reader has greatly improved over the years and i expect great things from them in the future as technology evolves.
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 PDF Editor in the market

Reviewed 2 years ago

Excellent! I'm a satisfied customer, and the customer service people have always attended to me promptly

Pros

1. I use abbyFine Reader to convert pdf, scanned documents, and photographic documents with text into the text of other formats or ebook formats of my choice (.epub, .azw3. .rtf, Word, Wordperfect, Html, Microsoft Word, editable pdf, etc.). AbbyFine Reader 15 is the only software to convert ebooks by recognizing pictures or tables and recognizing the layout in the source document as much as possible....

Cons

So far so good, BUT add new functionalities, like (1) audio capabilities, (2) converting pdf to Publisher, (3) Improving ebook conversion

The standard in converting PDF to something editable

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

Good OCR functions to convert PDFs or other documents back to something useable like Excel or Word.

Cons

The conversion needs rather good quality originals to reduce misinterpretations or errors in recognition.

After years Abbyy still carries several disappointing defects that don't justify it's price

Reviewed 8 months ago

It's impresses me that I've been using Abby for many years and it still carries many of the same defects it has always had; it sometimes does perfect conversions into Ms word but quite oftenly it renders a file in which I have to make many corrections before start working with it. The precisión to detect the characters has improved over the years and sometimes it can detect complex tables, which is nice to see, but regarding tables with not clear imprinted lines the program files to detect them at all.

Pros

That only sometimes renders a perfect conversion into Ms word that I can use to work, and I mean a file where I don't have to remake any parts of the text or recapture images, etc.

Cons

That it changes the page I'm working on just by scrolling, that's tedious. That's solves many of the text by putting it into a floating case box, and that's terrible and cannot be turned off. That many obvious tables are not detected by Abbyy when automatic converting, specially those without visible lines. That it fails to detect structures when converting scanned pages. That the function of detecting...
