What’s New in ABBYY FineReader

Below are descriptions of the new features and updates in ABBYY FineReader.

Intelligent document processing
  • ABBYY’s ADRT® technology

    ABBYY FineReader uses the revolutionary new Adaptive Document Recognition Technology ADRT® 2.0, which lets users analyze and process entire documents at once, instead of page by page.

    Now, with ADRT technology, users can restore the document heading hierarchy and use it to construct an index. The restoration process for components of the logical document structure, such as headers and footers, footnotes, image and table captions, etc., is now improved. When recognition results are saved in Microsoft Word, these elements are reproduced not just as text, but as the appropriate Microsoft Word objects.

  • Automated image pre-processing

    ABBYY FineReader 10 can automatically preprocess digital images. When activated, the image preprocessing feature automatically decides what action to take depending on the input image type and applies the correction. Adjustments include removing noise from digital photos, deskewing, straightening text lines, and correcting trapezium distortions.

    This type of processing considerably improves the quality of digital photos recognition.

  • MRC compression of PDF and PDF/A files

    If data are exported to PDF and PDF/A formats, users have option to use MRC (Mixed Raster Content), an advanced compression technology. This technology produces improved file compression results with no damage to the quality of the file. MRC is the best choice for processing color documents.

  • Language recognition

    ABBYY FineReader can recognize documents in 186 languages, including Russian, English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Finnish, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Slovakian, Czech, Bashkir, Byelorussian, Kazakh, Ukrainian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and Hebrew.

    The latest version also supports recognition of texts in Korean.

Ease of use
  • Auto-detection of document languages

    ABBYY FineReader uses the latest technologies to automatically detect document languages, making the program more user-friendly and improving recognition quality.

  • New Quick Tasks

    The expanded selection of quick tasks, including the most frequently used recognition tasks, lets you easily and quickly achieve the results you want. The input data can be provided as PDF documents, image files, digital photos, or scanned documents.

  • Enhanced interface

    The new results-driven interface of ABBYY FineReader 10 has been enhanced, making it even more user-friendly and intuitive.

    • The new New Task window makes it easier to work with quick tasks.
    • New toolbars provide access to basic commands.
    • Keyboard shortcuts can now be customized, and the most frequently used tools are displayed on the quick access bar.
