What’s new


Edit all of the PDF

With FineReader PDF 15, editing PDFs of any kind, including scanned documents, has become almost as easy as with a text editor. You can edit entire paragraphs, change the text formatting, edit table cells, and even rearrange the whole layout.


Export document comparisons

In addition to exporting the differences between two versions of a document as comments in a PDF, you can now also export the results as a Word document in track-changes mode. This allows you to easily accept or reject the edits and finalize the document (for FineReader PDF 15 Corporate only).


Create fillable PDF forms

Create interactive PDF forms from scratch, or make a PDF fillable, by adding fields, drop-down lists, multiple-choice questions, action buttons, and more. With PDF form creator in FineReader PDF, you can create a fillable PDF to effectively collect information and create standardized document templates!


Make an impact across the organization

New Remote User licenses allow organizations to use FineReader with desktop and application virtualization solutions. New options have been added to customize FineReader PDF settings during deployment using Group Policy Objects.

Volume licensing across the organization

ABBYY FineReader PDF offers flexible, straightforward volume licensing to meet the varied needs of private businesses, public organizations, and educational institutions.

What our customers say

"It works well for grabbing the text off scanned documents"

The best part of ABBYY FineReader is how when you import a scanned document to OCR, you can see it scanning before your eyes. It looks really cool!

Jeremy B

Director, Small business

"A fantastic document OCR / conversion tool"

Excellent price point, simplicity of use. Extracted text accuracy (e.g. PDF to Word) is excellent - staggering sometimes when you see the input quality. The comparison tool is particularly useful for seeing how someone may have altered a document sent then printed / scanned into PDF.

"There is really no competitor for FineReader 15"

It has an uncanny ability to accurately deconstruct a document and capture the text, non-text elements and the layout. And it does this in multiple languages with equal accuracy. I think the product is unsurpassed.

"Just what I needed for college"

Being able to scan documents and search the text has been invaluable to me as a student. I was able to scan my loose-leaf textbook and use it as an "e-book," searching definitions and such on my computer. Being able to create and edit PDF files, using the screen-shot feature to capture needed graphics and such, has been incredibly useful!

"It makes my job easier"

ABBYY digitalizes documents and images and allows me to save them in different formats, preserving the structure of said documents and images. It's simply amazing.
