The ABBYY FineReader Pro for Mac allows you to create editable, searchable files and e-books from scans of paper documents, PDFs, and digital photographs. ABBYY FineReader Professional provides text recognition and document processing for your home or office. ABBYY FineReader Pro for Mac also improves on the speed and accuracy of text recognition and conversion from its predecessor, eliminating the need to retype or reformat your documents.


Accurate Text Recognition and Layout Retention
Precise text recognition and layout retention are critical for maximum productivity. And FineReader Pro's accuracy is up to 99.8%, according to ABBYY's internal testings. This means it delivers editable digital copies of documents that precisely match your original's text and layouts without the need for manual retyping or corrections.
Adaptive Document Recognition Technology (ADRT)
ABBYY's innovative Adaptive Document Recognition Technology (ADRT) precisely recreates the structure and formatting of multi-page documents. This includes text size and font styles, tables and diagrams, columns, headers, footers, footnotes, tables of contents, page numbers, and more. The result is your converted documents look exactly like the original yet they have native formatting attributes and can be edited.
Multilingual for Mac
A single OCR tool that recognizes text in 189 languages - including European and Asian languages, Hebrew and Arabic, as well as any combination of them.
User-Friendly Interface
FineReader Pro for Mac's intuitive interface guides you through the entire process of scanning and converting documents. And predefined Quick Tasks mean you'll get jobs done with just a few mouse clicks. Additionally, FineReader Pro for Mac identifies document characteristics (e.g. layout, languages, etc.) automatically, which gives you the option of adjusting settings manually if needed. Plus, FineReader is Section 508 compliant, which ensures accessibility.
Supports Multiple Formats
Save text recognition results in the format of your choice, such as text documents (DOCX, ODT, RTF), spreadsheets (XSLX), searchable, editable and other PDF and PDF/A documents, PPTX presentation, HTML, or e-book (EPUB, FB2) formats. You can also send results directly from FineReader to applications including Apple Pages, Apple Numbers, Microsoft Word, Excel, and many others.
Create Searchable PDFs for Archiving
With a few mouse clicks you can turn paper documents into searchable compressed PDF files for archiving. Information in such archives can be retrieved at any time you need it by using keyword search, while document compression reduces the amount of disk space used. You can also save files to a PDF/A format for long-term archiving.
Customize PDFs
FineReader Pro for Mac enables you to add document properties, it can also create tagged PDFs optimized for portable and screen reader devices, and creates PDF outlines for fast navigation across a document.
Automatic Correction of Digital Photos in Documents
Just take a snapshot of any document you'd like to OCR. FineReader applies sophisticated image pre-processing tools to correct image distortions for text recognition, then recognizes and converts the document into the format of your choice.
Edit Images with Image Editor
You can also correct photos of documents manually in FineReader to achieve improved recognition results. Image Editor enables you to correct brightness and contrast, straighten curved text lines, correct trapezium distortions, reduce ISO noise and remove motion blur, split dual pages, crop images, and more.
Digitize and Share Important Documents
Digitize and make multiple copies of documents in order to use image processing functions to improve visual quality of original documents. So if you have a valuable paper document which content you'd like to share, you can just scan and print as many copies as you need while removing "noise" and some other defects that can be found on it. Or, create a PDF that you can send as an email attachment or upload to the cloud.
E-Book Creations
Digitize books and printed documents to fully formatted electronic files optimized for reading on portable devices in the popular FB2 and EPUB formats.
Advanced OCR for Complex Tasks
FineReader Pro for Mac provides a variety of advanced features that enable full control over the OCR process and its output. These include managing document pages, size/quality ratio control, document export mode and layout retention, editing complex tables (including the ability to manage text languages, text orientation and pictures within table cells) and more.
Process Batches of Documents and Automate Conversion Tasks
Convert documents with support for Automator actions and AppleScript commands. Create task apps that enable drag and drop conversion of images and PDF files. Drag a file on to a task app icon and it will be converted into the format you have specified - without you having to first launch the main FineReader application. Specify a folder for automatic conversion - all incoming files or batches of documents will then be processed as soon as they arrive at the specified folder. Schedule OCR processes to automatically run at designated dates and times.
Making Document Content Accessible for Text-To-Speech Utilities
With FineReader Pro for Mac, all you need do is convert paper documents or PDFs into a supported electronic format - they will automatically become accessible via text-to-speech utilities installed on your computer.
