Readiris for Mac

02 November 2020

Powerful, accurate OCR software.

What is Readiris for Mac

Readiris is the most powerful and accurate OCR software for OS X. It accurately and rapidly transforms your paper documents, your PDFs and images files into editable information ready to be use.

Completely redesigned for Mac OS X, Readiris offers an easy to use user interface, which clearly guides you through the recognition steps. Extremely powerful, Readiris Pro exactly recreates the original format of your documents and replaces columns of text, tables, and graphics in the output file.

A large choice of output formats allows you to choose the format that best suits your needs. You can recreate a document in word processors or in spreadsheet programs, to get indexed PDF files with both the image and the text or to easily create Web pages thanks to the WYSIWYG HTML output format.

this does absolutely nothing to enhance the pleasurable experience of scanning with HP utils. why buy something that will not complement the util? to me, this is a ripoff type software that is not required for basic scanning documents.

TwainProxy is *still* 32-bit only. Seriously??? First I had to buy VueScan because Epson has stopped supporting their TWAIN scanning software, and now Canon/IRIlink has failed to create a 64-bit version of TWAINProxy???

No thanks, I'll stick to the last boxed copy of ReadIRIS until this issue is remedied/fixed, if ever.

At this rate, I don't think ReadIRIS 18 will ever come out...

I have been using Readiris Pro for a number of years. I have not had the problems reported below. (fingers crossed). There is a dearth of OCR software for the mac and when my previous software (OmniPage I think) stopped being supported I had to look elsewhere. ViewScan has rudimentary OCR and did the trick for a while. Then I tried Readiris, which was ported across from Windows I think. I have found the OCR engine quite accurate. I have spent little time teaching it. The ability to save the file as pdf, doc or xls is great. There are more export options available too. You can also save documents in a multi-page format, which is handy for pdf. I was able to upgrade from my version 16 software for $69. This necessitated leaving MacUpdate and going into the IRIS website. I did have trouble activating version 15 a few years ago, but I got a prompt response from the support site and had no further problems. I had no problems installing, activating and registering version 17 in High Sierra 10.13.4. I think the software does what it claims to do. The UI is a bit Windows like, but that does not worry me. Windows is quite friendly these days. So I take of ½ a point for that. I will continue to use it.

Anyone considering purchase of Readiris OCR software should be aware that they have ZERO service. Apparently, you cannot get to a live human being even using their sales number. Sending questions to Support results in automated replies of receipt but NEVER an actual reply. Updates generally cannot be applied, for whatever reason. New versions of the MAC OS often force re-entry of a serial number, but after a few updates, then the software is bricked. Several reviewers here are correct: Do not purchase this software.

I really wanted to consider upgrading but I want a real demo for I have been burned before. And the stupid 50 page limit cannot be justified. I have reported many bugs over the decades but never a response; fixes come late. Tech support is poor. I was forced to use the windows version for many years for it was vastly better. Shame they like Abbyy hate/cynical about the mac market. Nuance too; there will never be a Mac Omnipage. Prizmo is the best so far but its based on Google's OCR engine so they can't tweak it.

If you're a Mac user, DO NOT PAY FOR THIS SOFTWARE! I can't speak to the Windows version, but the Mac version is one of the worst apps I've ever experienced.

Their most recent update will not install under OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). Their technical support phone line goes to a recording telling the caller to email them. So far I have not found an OCR company that delivers quality support.

"Download" links to a page that will allow us to "watch a complete demonstration of the product" if we provide our complete name and email first. Surely their website has been vandalized. The rest of their website offers no information I can find about whether my license key for Readiris Pro 11 (Which never worked) will work on this (fixed?) version. Guess I'll never know. No-star for v.11, and for denying me an opportunity to give them a second chance.

Currently at version 14.0.9. Whilst there are a few "Windows-isms", in general this application is pretty decent, with fast and accurate recognition. The UI is also much better than in previous versions. My only major criticism is that there does not seem to be any logic behind the scattering of the icons/buttons around the window - some are buttons that cause actions to take place, some are "switches" and some switch into different modes. Some bring up popup menus, some bring up dialogs and it is all very random. I hope there's a bit more logic involved in the code itself!
