Product Delivers Next-Generation Technologies for Intelligent Reproduction of Multi-Page Document Formatting and Recognition of Digital Photographs

Moscow, Russia (September 22, 2009) — ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and language software, today announced ABBYY FineReader 10, the newest version of the professional-level optical character recognition (OCR) application. Delivering the next generations of its two major technologies — ABBYY ADRT® (Adaptive Document Recognition Technology) for reproducing multi-page document formatting and Camera OCR, FineReader 10 takes OCR to new heights, driving it beyond traditional text recognition. In combination with its highly intuitive, task-oriented interface, the enhanced technologies bring greater efficiency, simplicity and performance to all scenarios of professional work with documents, for both consumer and business users.

ABBYY FineReader 10 delivers further enhancements in page layout retention, especially on documents with background images (e.g. magazine pages). The new version also provides up to 30 percent increase in text recognition accuracy for Asian languages (e.g. Chinese and Japanese) and up to 20 percent increase for European languages (e.g. English, French, German, Polish, etc.). In addition, it demonstrates up to 30 percent accuracy improvement on low print quality images such as digital photos and faxes and takes a significant step forward in delivering accurate results on photographs captured with mobile phone cameras. Providing superior accuracy in recognizing various types of documents, FineReader allows users to considerably reduce manual operations while working with documents and facilitates the transition to a paperless environment.
