REVSED...OK, think I got it figured out. And now I like it. I have no idea what this is doing. I ask it to recognize, it starts then stops. If I can get it to work, then what? Can't edit in the right hand box. can't save as editable, I have no idea how to use this.

I am unable to delete this program since it is not listed in Uninstall. Also when I double click a list on my USB I get this program and am unable to open my listing on USB to edit. I am either missing something or something is not right with the program.

95%-99% recognition. With auto correct from MS Word, it is very easy to convert a perfect copy of the original

I really needed a program that would allow me to highlight and control find a PDF with a scanned doc. This works great and fast!

More errors than it actually got correct. This is the most inaccurate OCR programs I have used in several years.

Runs fast on a atom processor. Although a better way to cut and paste, export or share would be helpful. Only made one mistake on 100 or so words. Also take pretty high resolution photos. 5 mp photos worked fine.

Even though this is just a "demo" application for their SDK, it has come in very handy for OCRing PDFs. It tends to do better than Word 2013's PDF reflow or OneNote's "text from image" feature. They also fixed a bug I reported that was blocking OCR of some PDFs within a few weeks.

I tried to convert a Income statement so I could have access the data but it didn't work. Subsequently my other files dont work to be converted either.
