Softonic review

Accurate multilingual OCR software for Macs

ABBYY FineReader Express for Mac is an impressively accurate and OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software.

ABBYY FineReader Express can convert any scanned document, PDF file and digital images into editable and searchable text while maintaining the original layout and formatting.

The most impressive aspect of ABBYY FineReader Express is the accuracy of text recognition compared to similar options such as OmniPage and Vuescan. ABBYY FineReader Express is also able to scan a much wider range of languages (171) compared to other OCR software.

The interface is simple and much more modern than OmniPage, although it still feels a bit basic and in need of an update. Of course, it also includes all the standard features you'd expect such as PDF conversions, table and spreadsheet recognition and image processing tools. However, while the text recognition accuracy is superb, you may find that formatting may not be quite as good especially when it comes to text size.

ABBYY FineReader Express is overall a very accurate and impressive piece of OCR software that could do with a few minor improvements.

PROS

  • Very accurate
  • Scans lots of languages
  • Exports to PDF

CONS

  • Interface is quite basic
  • Formatting issues
