New version of Omnipage presented
Scansoft today released version 11 of the well-known OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software Omnipage Pro, parts of which are also used in Office XP.
The most important new features of the undisputed best text recognition program include the option to export formatted text from PDF documents or to create PDF documents yourself with the tools supplied. Furthermore, according to Scansoft, the accuracy of the text and layout recognition, which of course also includes tables, has been increased by no less than 40 percent. In addition, over 100 languages are to be recognized, whereby with the help of the Intellitrain error correction, repeated errors due to corrections by the user should no longer be present in future scan processes. A voice readback function, which can leave recognized texts on request, is now included. While the English version is available immediately, the German version will only be available in the third week of July as an update for DM 300 or as a full version for DM 700.
