does the job

I had some problems with bugs at first install, but after a reboot, the application seems to be working. the interface is somewhat simplistic, but seems to do what I need wich is:

1) get my fujitsu fi-6130 scanner working with my mac
2) painlessly scan, deskew, and generally clean-up receipts, busines cards, and documents

the OCR seems to work as well, though omnipage (PC) seems to do a better job. I haven’t checked it against fine reader. however, for my purposes (making PDFs searchable) it seems good enough.

Version 18.7 is unstable

I’ve been using ExactScan Pro for a few years now and have generally liked it. It’s fast and OCR is good. It has never been good at de-skewing small objects, like scanned business cards, checks, and small receipts.

I recently downloaded the updated version - 18.7 - and it crashes a lot during long scanning sessions. Today when I launched it, the “Scan” button was gone and only the “Preview” button was there. So I’ve deleted the app and am going to reinstall a fresh copy in hopes that’ll fix the issue.

Developer updates seem to be released consistently, so hopefully they can clean up whatever’s going on in the next release. Soon, please.

Exact Scan

I have been using ExactScan for a few years now and I couldn't be happer. For those who need scanner software to handle large amounts of scanning, this is the software for you. I've contacted support a few times, and their response is outstanding, getting an answer extremely quick. I have recommended the pro software to a few colleages who are Apple users and need robust scanning software that supports many windows only scanners. Five Stars- Kevin.
