4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job 3 Aug 2009
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have tried most of the OCR applications out there and this one continues to improve and keeps its place at the head of the pack.

The application is slow to install and slow to load in use but once it fires up and gets going it does a good job. Like most OCR apps it improves with use as it remembers peculiarities of handwritten script and build up a user dictionary. That said it will good a pretty good job straight from the box.

There are several versions of this program with a greater or lesser set of features but for most people this one will cover all their needs.

If you need a good well specified OCR product and don't need too many whistles and bells then this will fit the job.

1.0 out of 5 stars omnipage pro vs Abbyy 19 May 2010
Verified Purchase
The product was not as stated on its box, it was not fast and for me this was the reason i purchased it as it made certain claims about speed. I have a lexmark office all in one with windows 7 and a fast quad machine, however, the software did not integrate well with the printer scanning module which cause the process to take about 3 mins per page.

I am a software engineer so I reasonably expect that the software will integrate well with windows and modern printers, I returned the package back to amazon. I then purchased ABBYY Pro 10 and this was much more effective scanning in 30 seconds and doing a very good job at complex multi column recognition.

My view is that these two products are the only two consumer products that should do the job fast and well it was unfortunate that Nuance (Omnipage) have not tested properly against a wider range of products and for me resulted in extremely poor performance.

However for you it may be fine.

I do prefer the way that Abbyy 10 pro works and I would say its interface is more user friendly but thats a personal opinion.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have an expensive 9950F Canon flatbed scanner so I got this Nuance OmniPage 17.0 OCR [optical character recognition] program to scan pages of printed text and photos into Word. Installation was simple via the supplied CD, and using the code supplied on the CD wallet I quickly activated the software over the internet. Once OminPage 17 was up and running I selected 'get page' and it found my USB2 scanner. It didn't recognise my scanner for auto-setup using the Nuance scanner database though [strange as it was Canon's top of the range], but the OmniPage scanner wizard quickly set it up so that Omnipage 17 could fully control it. Ominpage 17 also integrates into the Word 2007 menu, giving an 'aquire text' button.

I scanned in my extended CV, printed in quality inkjet type, and OmniPage scanned in all 14 pages with less than one character recognition error per page. Plus all the formatting seemed spot on when exported to Word XP/2003 format. You can also export the OCR text document in Word 2007, Wordperfect X2, Excel, pdf, RTF, unicode text, text, and XPS formats. Scan speed and OCR was also pretty fast on my modern gaming PC, scanning each page in under a minute and performing the OCR a tad faster. The only slow bit really is manually loading the pages to be scanned. I also tried scanning twenty pages of rather poor school handouts for my daughter and again the text recgnition was spot on, with about two minor errors per page [that were picked up and prompted for correction during scanning]. These errors were largely black smudge marks on the photocopy pages that looked like full stops or a letter. Other errors included an 'i' instead of an 'I', all minor stuff.

1.0 out of 5 stars Office 2010 3 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase
Beware - this does not work with Office 2010 and Nuance support can give no indication of when - or if - it ever will.

I suspect, based on their response to me, that you will need a new version before it does and that no update will be forthcoming for version 17.

Having paid 60 for 6 months use - Office 2010 was out when I bought this - this is not good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars OmniPage 17 - OCR software 10 July 2010
Nuance's optical recognition software package (OmniPage 17) is accurate and produces text documents in most popular word processor formats. It is a mile ahead of my earlier package. This software package is recommended if you need to convert printed pages into a text file with a minimum of fuss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Busy interface but productive 15 Sep 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I use a lot of pdf documents in my work and it was the ability to edit these doucuments that attracted me to ordering this product. So far, after being a bit daunted by the layout and controls, I've found this to be a very useful productivity tool. It installed and ran with no problems on my Mac Mini, both in bootcamp and Vmware fusions emulation.

Considering the cost of a recent version of Adobe Acrobat (with lots of features that nobody uses), this software is outstanding value for money for anyone who needs to do a lot of scanning and document layout editing.
