3-0 out of 5 stars Useful but not as good as FineReader overall
I do a great deal of OCR in my research and have scanned thousands of pages each with OmniPage Pro 12 (OP12) and FineReader 6 (FR6). I have also made extensive use of previous versions of both programs. I am happy to have both, because they excel at different things. For my work, however, if I had to choose just one it would have to be FR6. Others might have different preferences depending on what they do and what their equipment and software are.

The bulk of my scanning/OCR involves academic articles and historical materials. For the most part I produce PDF files, although I also scan some tables to produce spreadsheets and do some scanning to Word files. Depending on the quality of the original and my precise purpose I may make a PDF with an image and hidden text, an OCR text file, or an OCR text file with images of uncertain words. I use an HP 7450 scanner connected to a Windows 2000 system with a 1.8 GHz P4 processor and 512 MB of RAM.

For my purposes, OP12's outstanding feature is the quality of its grayscale and color scans. In fact, I even sometimes use it to produce images for processing by FR6. Generally speaking, the PDF image files produced by OP12 seem to run about 80% smaller than those that FR6 produces for equal text quality -- and better rendition of photos! This is not true for black-and-white (1 bit) files, where FR6 seems to have a slight edge. But when the material calls for image output I usually click on OP12.

OCR is another story, for several reasons. First of all, when the going gets tough, OP12 quits in a huff. It will suddenly crash no warning whatever. This seems to be OCR-related, but if it happens while scanning the chances of recovering your already-scanned work are poor. For this reason, I always scan and recognize separately with OP12, since then the crashes usually do not corrupt the scanned images. Depending on the complexity of the material, I may get a crash anywhere from one in every 20 to one in 100 pages.

Naturally, separate scanning and recognition slows the process down. On top of that, OP12 is very slow to start with, at least with "only" a 1.8GHz processor and 512 MB of RAM and all other applications closed. When I need fast results or cannot tolerate crashes I use FR6, which is distinctly faster and seems nearly bulletproof.

Moreover, when accuracy of scanning counts, OP12 is next to useless for my purposes. That's because it is very weak on anything but straight text. Superscripts all look like quotation marks to it and subscripts all come out as commas. It is also very poor with any sort of special symbols or equations. Nor is there any way to correct these mistakes in the editing process -- you're forced to edit the PDFs with Adobe Acrobat, a very slow and laborious process. If you have material with as many superscripts, subscripts, and special symbols as the typical academic article, it is really faster to retype it than to try to do it with OP12. FR6, by contrast, gives reasonably good accuracy with such material and makes it easy to correct the mistakes that do crop up.

In a surprising number of cases, OP12 will rotate the page so that the text is not upright and then proceed "recognize" it as garbage. FR6 is not immune to this, but does it significantly less often.

FR6 is sometimes wrong but never in doubt -- it has never reported being unable to complete OCR of a page, no matter how complex. OP12 is easily confused, especially when the page mixes text and tables, and then insists that you manually zone the page before it will proceed.

Both programs offer an "auto-special" completely automatic mode that will do a decent job on simple material (assuming that OP12 doesn't crash in the middle). When you need to customize settings, however, FR6 offers more range of choices. It also offers more flexibility in correcting recognition errors and in manual zoning, should that be necessary.

Surprisingly for a version 12, OP12 has a great many glitches, bugs, oddities, and time-wasting annoyances that make it seem more like an early beta. About 20% of the PDFs it produces are unreadable -- it's important always to check. The early FineReader versions were extremely rough, but FR6 is a very stable and finished product.

As I say, I don't regret the money I've spent on either of them. However, FR6 is more generally useful, faster, and trouble-free -- and significantly cheaper. If the maker of FR6, ABBYY, would fix their scanning (something I've suggested to them several times) it would clearly be the preferable program. As things are, OP12 fills some needs better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest thing since sliced bread
As I am writing this review OmniPage Pro 12 is whirring away in the background.
I was just minding my own business trying to scan a hard copy report that was made form an 84 page spread sheet. All I got was vertical words. Then it happened; the system said if I wanted the real thing to buy an OmniPage Pro 12 upgrade. All that money for 84 pages? Then I thought of retyping all those pages and it was a no brainier.
I opened the package and started to read the manual. After about five minutes I just decided to take the plunge and put the CD in. five minutes later and the system had installed and checked out the scanner and chose the best approach to scanning to OCR. I used the OmniPage interface once and after playing around realized it was telling me how to use itself with a one-two-three step. Then I realized what the manual was saying and found that I could operate the process even easer from the Microsoft Word program. It works like a charm with no interference to any other process. The scan and OCR calculated that I was copying a table and created one that was appropriate. It even recognized that the page was placed in landscape. I have not tried Excel yet but if it works as well I could kick my self for not doing this earlier.
For those interested this is an XP system.

2-0 out of 5 stars not clear it's worth the upgrade from 11
I like the new batch mechanism, which has an "output file per input file" option. I haven't particularly noticed a stability problem (Win2K SP4 + OP12 SP1/2). However, the deal with the PDFs is this: when OP12 reads an image PDF, it will only save such PDFs as grayscale (if you ask for image/image+text), and OP12 can only save grayscale/color PDFs at 150dpi. Hence, if you have bi-level input PDFs at >150dpi resolution, you get enormous, ugly 150dpi grayscale output PDFs. On the other hand, OP12 can handle high resolution TIFFs just fine (i.e., it will save them as image/image+text PDFs with the correct resolution). This makes absolutely no sense and is a big step backward from OP11. As the other reviewer notes, they appear not to have any intention of fixing this in OP12.

1-0 out of 5 stars Omnipage Pro 12 Loves to Crash
Omnipage Pro 12 loves to crash. So much so, that it is impossible to batch convert a folder of files to Adobe Acrobat .pdf "image with text", which is the only really useful Adobe Acrobat format. Here we are in the year 2003, and software developers still haven't figured out how to gracefully exit their programs when the unexpected happens. Ominpage Pro 12 simply cannot deal with Adobe Acrobat .pdf formats well. Review the user groups on Scansoft's website, and you will see two major problems with its Acrobat compatibility. The first is when using Scansoft on an existing .pdf image file. Importing the .pdf file, capturing the text, and saving the file as .pdf "image with text" (which is supposed to save the ORIGINAL image with searchable background text) causes the image to degrade. Don't ask me why, but the image in the output file is not the same quality as the imported .pdf image. So to work around this issue, I started scanning our documents into .tif format (600x600) on our high speed scanner, and then importing the .tifs into Scansoft, for conversion to .pdf "image with text". The resulting .pdf files were graphically sharper than when I had imported existing .pdf files. The big problem is that running the Omnipage Pro 12 "Schedule OCR" on the folder of .tif files, Omnipage Pro 12 simply crashes at random places in the conversion process. No graceful exit. No warning. To summarize, Scansoft's Omnipage Pro 12 is inadequate to save files as .pdf "image with text". It crashes. And this happens on both a Windows 98 PC and a Windows 2000 PC, so it's not a PC-specific issue. Scansoft wants to charge you money to submit a problem form. Imagine, paying them to spend time addressing their own mistake! This is a bad way to conduct business.

5-0 out of 5 stars FineReader tops OmniPage-10
I've been using Omni-10 and recently was about to remove the old Presto from my harddrive. However, I ran across the new ABBYY FineReader Office and gave it a try. For my money, it's a LOT better than Omni-10 (don't know about -11 except that it's costly).

FineReader doesn't have the text-to-voice of Omni, but I don't do any recognition of tables (where the feature is supposed to be valuable) anyway. FR's character recognition is superior, but the best feature is that it chooses a font size and kerning that really do an excellent job of reproducing the original (not choosing too-small font sizes with giant spaces, like Omni-10).

Overall, beats Omni-10 -- which in turn beats everything else! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Known for its accuracy and ease of use, OmniPage Pro 10 has earned its reputation as one of the most popular Optical Character Recognition (OCR) applications available. By converting printed documents into editable text, this program frees the user from hours spent retyping letters, papers, contracts, and more.

Pages from books, magazines, and faxes are easily processed using the automated wizard. Process pages directly from your scanner or from one of six popular image file formats. You can even import text directly into a document that you are working on in Word or another application without opening OmniPage Pro. The application lets you choose whether you would like to save plain text, text with formatting, or text and images with formatting.

The most visible improvements to this version fall under the page layout heading. For example, the OmniPage True Page output format provides a nearly perfect replicate of the printed page for easy export to desktop publishing software. There is also a new feature that can read recognized text out loud to aid in proofreading.

The manufacturer claims that OmniPage can recognize text on almost any document, including poor photocopies or faxes with better than 99% accuracy. Our tests showed much poorer accuracy on photocopies, faxes, and color print outs, but the results were good enough to represent a significant timesavings over retyping documents. Other documents were handled remarkably well, including text and images scanned from a full color magazine. --Elizabeth Wall--This review refers to the full version ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars ORU limited versions
I believe it is down right dishonest the way Caere and others ship, basically, a demo version. Mine stopped working after 25 uses. Heck, I had not even learned how to operate the thing.

Anyhow, I found myself needing an OCR program, so I ordered it thru Amazon (Amazon shunted me off to another vendor - which I cannot remember.)

After having the unit sent to me in July 2000, I learned that Ver 9 is obsolete. Why would Amazon allow obsolete software to be shipped?

5-0 out of 5 stars I think OmniPage 10 is great!
I'm not sure [people] had problems, but I installed OmniPage 10on my PIII-500 MhZ Clone machine with a 3 year old documan scanner, and it works like a charm! I scanned and OCR'd a 151 page document in about 10 hours (and it took this long because I was copying and pasting the text into a very old application)... and it was a photocopy! I would say it was about 98+% accurate. I saved SO much time that the [money] I spent on it was well worth it. The voice readback worked like a charm! (and my machine hasn't crashed 1 time while using it, and I've got A LOT of stuff on it).

I must admit that I almost didn't buy it based on the prior reviews, but I took a leap and don't regret it one bit.

1-0 out of 5 stars Omnipage Pro 10 a poor performer
I was very disappointed after trying this product. It was very slow, crashed a lot and was unacceptably innacurate in OCR. I truely believe that a fair typist could easily type a document faster than this software can do OCR. With all the editing one has to do after OCR this software is not recommended. I am using a Dell XPS T-500, 128 Meg RAM, 79% resources free, HP 5200C scanner and pasting into Word 2000.

1-0 out of 5 stars Omnipage Pro 10 OCR
Caere manufactures this. But they don't "care." I erased the copy I bought AND REGISTERED and they said "tough luck." So I bought version 10. It's no better than 9--maybe worse. Version 8 was as good. By the way, if you try to use somebody else's copy--and you don't register--they'll cut you off after 25 uses. Talk about "big brother." If you can find another brand, do it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than the OCR that came with your scanner
I purchased this software in the hopes that it would be a major improvement over the ocr software that came with my Epson scanner. However, even though I think it is a better program, I am uncertain whether it was worth the price of the upgrade. Even though its documentation states that it is 99% accurate - my testing of the software shows that it is about 80% accurate. The software works well - however, the feature where you can have your document read back to you does not work as expected. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Streamline 4.0 is an excellent bridge between the worlds of freehanddrawing and resolution-independent graphics. At its heart, the software isbasically a conversion utility, a tool for importing bitmapped (raster) imagesand exporting them as vector-based line art. But it's a disservice to theupgrade to downplay what is so simply stated.

The value of Streamline becomes apparent after the first conversion--it quickensthe heart to see a hand-drawn, bitmapped image imported into a program likeAdobe Illustrator, where one can tweak the curve and width of any line, andscale it up until it fills a billboard.

The process starts with a drawing or image being scanned in or photographed witha digital camera and saved out from a program like Adobe Photoshop. It is thenopened in Streamline (it works with many file types, including native Photoshop)where the image is converted to vector lines.

The options for conversion are numerous: control point density, smoothness, linewidth, stroke or fill, curve smoothing. Additionally, areas of the originalimage can be selectively converted, with each area using different conversionsettings--some for smoother, thicker lines, some for rougher, more edgy lines,and variations thereof. Also, Streamline 4.0 now features a "convert to"command, for converting a roughly drawn shape into a standard shape; forexample, a crude egg shape on a cocktail napkin could be converted to a perfectcircle, or four rough strokes into a smooth, even rectangle. Streamline 4.0 alsosupports converting colors to vector-based areas of color. One can specify thenumber of colors to use and which color palette would best match.

Adobe-standard keyboard shortcuts improve one's efficiency with the application,and being able to drag and drop across applications is a handy feature thatanyone can grow to love.

Freehand drawing on a computer is not as easy or straightforward as takingpencil to paper--a natural quality is lacking, a texture more felt than seen.But graphics software offers features not found in "real-life" art, like theability to scale an image up and down without losing the sharpness of a line.For any serious digital artist, this upgrade is a must-have. It is one of thosetools that is used the least, but appreciated the most. --Mike Caputo ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

OmniPage Pro 11 is the fastest, easiest way to turn paper documents into digital files that you can edit. It features superior accuracy and the ability to convert PDF files into Microsoft Office documents. OmniPage Pro 11 extends its recognition capabilities from 13 to 114 languages, and from one to three alphabets, including Greek, Latin, and Cyrillic. This new version also handles grayscale and color images. It uses the extra pixel-depth information in grayscale images to internally generate black-and-white images for optimized OCR performance.

The new page formatter in OmniPage Pro 11 allows you to maintain every aspect of your original document, including columns, tables, and typestyles. You can save documents in PDF format for archiving or sharing: both image and paper documents can be transformed into PDF files for searching, preservation, and cross-platform distribution. The new IntelliTrain feature takes note of the changes you make in the proofing process. It then goes on its own "search and destroy" mission to find any recurrence of similar errors and corrects them automatically.

New despeckle enhancements allow you to take degraded documents like faxes and copies and recognize them with accuracy. And the ability to maintain text alignment and cell styles of spreadsheets and tables (even no-grid tables) means you won't have to worry about retyping or reformatting. You can also perform OCR functions directly from your favorite Microsoft programs for hassle-free OCR. The program works with Office 97, 2000, and XP. WYSIWYG HTML output means you can easily turn documents into Web pages. The program also now recognizes color backgrounds and color text. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars OmniPage Pro 11.0-A Lifesaver!
I upgraded my copy of OmniPage Pro 10 to OmniPage Pro 11, and haven't had any regrets since. One of the nicest features in this version of OmniPage, is the ability to work with Adobe PDF files. PDF files are great, but have little editing ability. With OmniPage Pro 11, this is no longer an issue. All I need to do now, is convert my PDF file to an Office file and edit away! This feature is almost worth the full price. In addition, OmniPage Pro 11 is far more accurate than OmniPage 10 ever was, and with added features OmniPage Pro 11 will work better than ever before. If you are a qualifying user, this is an upgrade that you should look into.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it for Omnipage 10 users!
If you have Omnipage 10 already, this upgrade is definitely worth the price! It adds features such as "Despeckle" which greatly reduces the reading of stray marks on paper as weird characters. (as you often see from fax or copies). This was my main complaint with Omnipage 10 and its fixed in the new version. There's also definitely a greater accuracy with reading columns and translating them into Excel (often with Omnipage 10 I'd get text scanned into one long column instead of 2 short ones...no problem with that here!). Also, the ability to translate PDF files into office documents...that alone makes the software worthwhile...the drag and drop feature in this software is VERY handy. Definitely buy if you have Omnipage 10 already.

3-0 out of 5 stars Better than before, but not the best OCR software
I scan books that are in the public domain, which is a demanding task for OCR software. The bottom line is that the Abbyy FineReader Pro v5.0 is THE BEST OCR software on the market right now. It far surpasses Scansoft's Textbridge Millennium. The only thing that even gives FineReader Pro 5.0 any competition is Scansoft's OmniPage Pro 11, but FineReader is still far better. Since Scansoft bought out Textbridge (from Xerox) and bought out OmniPage (from Caere), you would think they could develop a superior product, but that's not so. Omnipage appears to be billed as an upgrade to Textbridge (I'm guessing that Scansoft is sending Textbridge to the graveyard). Scansoft claims in an advertisement that they spent a YEAR combining the programs. However, Scansoft did not even include rudimentary features of Textbridge in OmniPage 11. For instance, if you scan a book two pages at a time with the binding flat against the scanner (this is very common for older books that need to remain intact), Textbridge Millennium could split apart the pages using a dual-page mode. This was an extremely helpful if not critical feature for scanning books. However, this feature does not exist in OmniPage 11. FineReader on the other hand, can do this and more. It works great with Auto Document Feeders and it is far more accurate than OmniPage 11. Finally, FineReader's error/spell checker is once again far superior to OmniPage 11. The only single advantage that OmniPage 11 has over FineReader 5.0 is that it can import/output Adobe PDF documents. Otherwise FineReader Pro 5.0 is the way to go.

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth upgrading to this new version
I upgraded my copy of Omnipage Pro 10.0 Scan Suite, which is a qualifying product to upgrade to OmniPage Pro 11.0. It was one of the smartest moves I've made. Not that there was anything terribly wrong with OmniPage Pro 10, but the added features and performance of version 11 is plain phenomenal. Optical character recognition (OCR) is dramatically more accurate in this new version, and it also recognizes and converts columns and tables. It also produces a virtually identical converted page, with graphics, tables and columns where they should be, instead of in unexpected places like the previous version sometimes did.

It imports Adobe Acrobat files, which is a major plus, and exports them into Microsoft Office format files - an even bigger plus. It will also turn a scanned document into an Acrobat PDF file. This does not supplant Adobe's Acrobat 5.0, though, because that product has capabilities that OmniPage doesn't have. See the Acrobat 5.0 product page on Amazon for more information.

Another plus is the ability to scan a page, have it accurately converted and save it as an HTML file, complete with graphics, which can then be uploaded to your web site. It can also be used to create documentation on a CD ROM that can be read using a browser. The possibilities here are endless and adds considerably to the value of this upgrade.

ScanSoft did a remarkable job with features and usability with this version. If you are using a qualifying product this upgrade is worth every penny. ... Read more
