What Our Customers Say

Millions of customers worldwide appreciate and rely on ABBYY FineReader PDF for Mac® to efficiently accomplish document tasks.

"Easiest GUI of the PDF programs I have."

A learning curve like most software. Of the 4 PDF programs I use this one is the easiest to use. I like to be able to adjust the brightness/contrast on some scans, and this one has the easiest to use adjuster. By being an App store item, I can use it on my other Macs, without having to buy a separate license for each Mac. Big money saver.

"Best you can buy"

The Program works just great as i use it while working for my youth group putting together records of classes they have completed. Works just great. 5 stars isnt enough!

"So much value..."

I've tested this against Acrobat Pro and another major OCR service. Abbyy's results are more accurate. If you're looking for quality but affordable OCR look no further!

"FineReader 2nd round- quite Good"

I've been using Fine Reader for some six years and have used it to scan and transcribe nearly 16,000 documents, dating from 1927 to 1980, that had been originally scanned as jpg files.
