OCR Software Guide from ScanStore

IRIS ReadIRIS OCR SoftwareThere are several OCR applications available to convert scanned images to text, Word, HTML or searchable PDF. The differences between them can often be obscure, leaving many to wonder why some applications cost about $100 while others cost $500.

Nuance OmniPage OCR SoftwareThe main features that differentiate OCR applications are:

  • Character recognition accuracy
  • Page layout reconstruction accuracy
  • Multi-engine voting technology
  • ABBYY FineReader OCR Software
  • Support for languages
  • Support for searchable PDF output
  • Speed
  • User interface

We have tested the latest versions of FineReader, OmniPage, ReadIRIS, and SimpleOCR and have determined that ABBYY FineReader is the best overall value for business users, while ReadIRIS is the best solution for under $200.

The key deciding factors were:

  • User interface design
  • Page layout reconstruction capabilities
  • Extensive language support
  • Stability of the engine when processing large documents
  • Quality and availability of technical support

Though other testing labs have ranked OmniPage's overall accuracy slightly higher, we find the difference is pretty negligible. All modern OCR applications have very good accuracy, so we recommend going with the one that has particular special features like ABBYY FineReader's screenshot reader or ReadIRIS's CardIRIS included in the Corporate version.

Because of the infinite combinations of document types, OCR engines and settings, it may be possible that one engine may perform better with your particular documents than another. For this reason, ScanStore provides demo downloads for all its OCR Software with your ScanStore User Account. Because of this variability and the subjectivity of user interface preferences, we recommend using the demos to see which performs best with your documents.
