What our customers say

Millions of customers worldwide trust and rely on ABBYY FineReader PDF to efficiently accomplish document tasks.

"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 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!
