Being one of the first Optical Character Recognition programs to ever meet the computer market, OmniPage Professional quickly became popular due to its accuracy and conversion speed. Its main purpose is to turn paper documents into editable content in a very effective way.
With fierce competitors such as ABBYY FineReader, OmniPage Professional still manages to preserve its crowd of fans by providing 99% and up conversion precision.
Documents can be scanned, processed, archived and shared in a way that maximizes efficiency and productivity, while minimizing efforts.
It works with most modern scanners or any multifunction device (MDF) printer that you can think of and is able to output in the following formats: PDF, DOC, XML, XLS, PPT, CSV, TXT, XPS (to name a few), as well as Kindle compatible file types.
The product’s list of features is extremely long, but the most important ones include state-of-the art OCR accuracy, batch conversion, turning papers into searchable documents, preserving the original formatting, automatic highlighting with workflows, sharing via cloud storage services, extensive support for over one hundred languages, PDF encryption and compression and page layout reconstruction.
It also includes a proof reading utility, which can be used together with the context specific correction feature in order to avoid language and vocabulary mistakes.
What sets OmniPage Professional apart from similar products is, indeed, as our tests confirmed, the character recognition accuracy. It turns out that it performs best when it deals with text, while tables and other types of complicated layouts were processed with few errors, overall.
The truth is you can’t really decide which OCR software is the best without conducting extensive tests, with hundreds of documents. And even though they concentrate on carrying out the same job, these applications are equipped with different engines and their performance varies from paper to paper. What we can state for sure about OmniPage Professional is that if you give it a try, you may not look the other way ever again.
