FineReader, developed by ABBYY, allows users to convert graphic files into text, searchable PDFs, and many other document types. This converting process is called "Optical Character Recognition" or "OCR". Thanks to ABBYY FineReader, users can have files processed by ABBYY directly from Scanners or Faxes into fully-fledged MS-office documents.

FineReader PDF empowers professionals to maximize efficiency in the digital workplace. Featuring ABBYY’s latest AI-based OCR technology, FineReader PDF makes it easier to digitize, retrieve, edit, protect, share, and collaborate on documents in the same workflow. Now, information workers can focus even more on their expertise and less on administrative tasks.
