Excellente application

C’est désormais la seule application d’OCR que j’utilise. Je la trouve facile d’utilisation et elle donne, éventuellement en plusieurs langues, des résultats remarquables. Un seul bémol, qui explique que je ne lui ai pas mis 5 étoiles : elle est très longue à charger et quelquefois elle a du mal à détecter un scanner en wifi. Il faut alors la fermer puis la rouvrir (patience…) car une fois lancée, si on allume le scanner après elle, elle est incapable de le trouver et ne sait apparemment pas le chercher.

Si ce défaut est corrigé, je lui donnerai sa cinquième étoile.


Pal mal mais peut mieux faire

Application très (trop !) longue à charger.

En exportant vers Word, Ajoute des fonds de paragraphes inexistants, ce qui oblige à revoir tout le texte.
Diffciculté à reconnaitre le texte un peu flou.

Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you for your comment! Background might be added to text if the original image had white text on dark background. Please try to have it inverted with Image Editor. If the situation is different, please send the images you processed and screenshots of settings applied with FineReader.
Thank you in advance!

Le mal voyants ,


I use this soft quite often because I bought it and have no other choice but it is really disppointing for hese resaons:
-no possibility to OCR a file in the Finder (on Mac os).
-If we choose a file and click on OPEN WITH FINEREADER, rinereader opens but without opening the file......
-it's quite slow and too complicated, in general I just need to scan a file to have a quick access on it because I'm visually impaired.

Dear Sir or Madam,
Thank you for honest and specific comment! We appreciate it greatly!
We expect the fix of "Open with FineReader" feature to be delivered with next update.
We forwarded your comment on OCRing documents directly in Finder to development team as feature request. Thank you for sharing!
One of options to have images converted to readable documents automatically is to set folder action using Atomator. We will be happy to walk you through the process of creating folder action. If you are interested, please let us know with e-mail to
