ABBYY — a provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and services — has announced FineReader Pro for Mac, a professional OCR (Optical Character Recognition) application for document scanning and conversion on the Mac platform.
The new application allows Mac users to edit, share, archive and search through their documents by turning them into popular electronic file formats, as well as copy and quote text from scans, PDFs and digital photos. By providing highly accurate text recognition, intelligent reconstruction of layout and formatting, and a straightforward interface, FineReader Pro for Mac offers a reliable alternative to manual retyping, says Ivan Bodyagin, director of the FineReader Products Department at ABBYY.

In addition, it allows users to process and recognize only selected areas on a document to quickly copy and quote information they need without having to process the entire document. FineReader Pro for Mac can also be used to prepare documents for use by various text-to-speech utilities.
