Has been updated: http://www.nuance.com/for-business/by-product/omnipage/ultimate/index.htm

Also, this is now owned by Nuance so maybe the developer could be adjusted?

The webpage you gave has this claim, which I found interesting (and about which I wonder what others might say):
"Most productive and accurate conversion to Searchable PDF
PDF files are everywhere and can come from a variety of sources. They can include scanned pages, embedded images, and text based information. Some of these elements don’t include searchable text but it is not obvious to most people and therein lays the problem. Using a typical OCR process to create what’s known as a Searchable PDF is a solution but it only works on scanned PDF documents that have not been altered. Forcing an OCR process on text based PDF files will unintentionally destroy text elements in order to create a Searchable PDF format.

To solve the problem of creating Searchable PDFs from files on disk without damaging existing text elements we created the eDiscovery Assistant for searchable PDF in OmniPage. This process intelligently analyzes PDF files of all kinds and determines only those PDF files, or pages in a PDF file that require an OCR process. We have migrated this very productive functionality into OmniPage DocuDirect so the process can be centrally located using a watched folder on a server and handled automatically."

BTW, today is the last day of a seven day sale which I was notified of by email from Nuance, with OmniPage Ultimate for $99 ($400 cheaper than list price). I'd guess the sale price is only available to those who were notified of it by email, etc.

Hey promise a 30 day money-back guarantee if not completely satisfied, so I'm very tempted.

It was updated for the last time more than 10 years ago? Terrible!!!!!!
If you are looking for an OCR app, try Prizmo.

AFAICT from just reading the comments on MacUpdate's webpage for Prizmo, $49 version of it is only a demo (?), it looks like the real deal may actually be $99.

This product should now be avoided like the plague.

Omnipage used to be state of the art. But the Mac version, having changed hands several times, has been left in limbo, and has not been updated for nearly 10 years. It runs under OSX X Leopard, even on an Intel Mac. But you can't use the scanning function which requires Classic (not available on an Intel Mac). And if you have a new scanner it's probably not in the scanner list.

Also, if you are upgrading there's another gotcha. It may not open your old files. To get round this, make sure your files have .opd as the file extension. Then open then in a hex editor and examine the resource fork. In all probability there isn't one. And that's why Omnipage won't open them. Create a new Omnipage file (import a single image - even a photograph) and save it. Open in the hex editor. Switch to the resource fork. Copy resource fork and then switch to the problem file. Paste into the resource fork and save. The file should now open (from the menu, not by double-clicking). You can then export the scanned images and use a more modern OCR package. I use, very successfully, ReadIris. Buy that instead.

If you MUST buy Omnipage have a hunt. I found a site (which I now can't find, of course) of a company that had taken it over and was selling at under £100 (~$150).

Deceptive. They call it X and make it appear that you'd actually want to run this thing in this decade, but you have to run it in CLASSIC which isn't even available anymore on Mac? Please, either upgrade this app for Leopard 10.5.x or just quit trying to rip off Apple users and mothball this thing entirely.

Try installing under Classic, on Applications folder (the OS X folder, not the Classic Apps folder). Then, open in OS X, ideally open the OmniPage Pro X app inside the components folder. :)

Tried to install under OSX.4.3 ... no luck. Tried to find any indication of how to fix the problem. Non on the website to be found. Technical Support only against a charge!? How can anybody market a product which does not install without any warning. I found some report on a work aroud for OSX.2, but I have no longer this old OS.
Be warned there is a problem!

Talk about ignoring the user base, this program won't even install natively on MacOS X at least since Panther. The program is good IF you can install it and use your newer scanner to make TIFF files this creaking program can still read, but breaks little by little due to lack of scanner support.

The developer should be ashamed of letting this wonderful program waste away and die. If anybody is even thinking of buying it, they should NOT do so until the developer updates it and should write lots of letters to them as well.

Horrible, horrible program.

It didn't find my scanner (canoscan lide 50). It had no way of trying to find my scanner.

There has been no update for this product for a long, long time.
