Fantastic! Just converted a document with 6 different languages buried in it and the job was done quickly and accurately. This is a gotta have if you deal with PDFs and multiple languages!

After many years, its clear Abbyy, like Nuance, will never make a full featured parity same as the Windows version. They still take too long to release bug fixes as well. Will not pay for future upgrades. I got screwed on their product thats just ok, but not for my demanding OCR needs. But sadly the other Mac OCR from Germany has its hands tied to Google OCR engine and so wont do any engine fixes. The only USA OCR has terrible tech support. After 20 yrs, There appears we mac folk are screwed on a professional quality OCR tool. Welcome to the lock in OS wars. :-p

I agree about the slowness of the development of FineReader Pro for Mac by ABBYY.
As for "the other Mac OCR from Germany," do you mean OCRKit? I would be surprised if that were tied to the Google OCR engine …

From their tech support:
"At the moment operating system Mac OS X 10.11 is not supported in ABBYY FineReader Pro for Mac. As soon as there is an update available and Mac OS X 10.11 is supported, information about it will be published at our website. "

I hear an update is coming in early Nov is coming. Other than bug fixes, I am hoping for more features to match the windows version.

"Though there is no demo download, MacUpdate Desktop users can download and install the update to v.12.1.3." Not only MU Desktop users can - anyone with a valid copy of FR Pro 12 has access to the updater file through the app's "Check for Updates" function.

Don't know if it's slower, but it is very slow, at least scanning JPEG files for text. It takes on the order of 5-7 seconds per page for a 2500x1600 JPEG. Running Omnipage 17 in a Win 7 VM on the same machine and the exact same image will complete in less than a second. It also got hung up for me after ~20 pages and had to be manually terminated.

That said, its recognition accuracy for Japanese was decent, not as good as Omnipage, but much better than the terrible Readiris engine, which is essentially useless for the language.

I wish Nuance would use their Asian OCR engine in a Mac product, after 10+ years it still is the best I've used out there.

If it works, for my it is the best OCR-App for Mac - the recognition is really good.

So its taken Abbyy nearly a year -- many updates at least -- to fix the many bugs and performance problems. Yet, they still won't make it feature parity with the Windows version. I suspect they will do v13 requiring 10.9/10.10 to finally get what I originally paid for and wanted ( like what Primzo did recently). I pray they will continue to support 10.7. For the many visual reasons I can't upgrade to 10.9/10.10. Please give me two key features, supporting 10.7: 1. A user vocab list so app knows the correct spelling of special words; or learn new words on the fly. 2. An edit pane near the image page so I can make corrects page not afterwards.

Hmmm - updating needs to be done from within 12.0.6. Which won't launch under Yosemite. Hehe. (I did send a complaint to ABBYY.)
