On Cisdem’s website they have some sample docs to test their software with. https://goo.gl/p7f9BS

I downloaded the first Adobe doc & dragged it into OCRWizard.
And the text was all garbled.

Original:
THE OLD CLERGYMAN, "THE GENERAL'S BROTHER," AND
SEVERAL NOTABLE PERSONS.

"BRING me a good book when you come home," said
the clergyman's daughter.
"And bring me a bad boy—the son of wicked
parents—that I may make a good Christian of him,"
added the clergyman's wife, while the worthy divine
was settling himself in the carriage, and they were
wrapping his cloak well round him, on account of the
sharp westerly wind.


OCRWizard version:
THX OLD CUBOTMAN, “ THE ODUU’l B BOTH Ell/* AND
■SVKBAL NOTABLE riUOID.
" Being me a good book when you come home," Mid
the clergyman’* daughter.
“And bring me a bad boy—the »on of wicked
parent*—that I may make a good Christian of him,”
added the clergyman’* wife, while the worthy divine
waa settling himself in the carriage, and they were
wrapping hi* cloak well round him, on account of the

EXPORT FUNCTION NEEDS WORK!
And I was expecting to be able to copy the scanned text directly in the app, not have to export and then copy it.

Tonight I installed the app and dragged in some pdf files. They appeared correctly but when exported to pdf a lot of the text was incorrect:

Several instances of the word "I" were changed to the number 1
The word PO was changed to 1*0
will became wall
Walgreens was changed to Walgrecns
walgreens.com became w-algrecns.com
case was changed to ease
would became w-ould
Chieco became Chicco
PRESIDENT/CEO was changed to I’residenfCEO
And so on and so forth.

The same errors were made when exported to TEXT.

Things really got f’d up when exported to RTFD!
All the formatting is shown:

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\uc1\deflang1033\adeflang1033\deflangfe1033\deff1\stshfloch1\stshfhich1\stshfbi1\stshfdbch1

Etc. - all the way from top to bottom of the document.

I downloaded and tried it. I think the function of converting PDFs, scanned documents and image files attracted me . Especially it can convert my business card. and I don't need to type the information any more. So I give 4.5 stars.

So there is no editing pane/panel before exporting the text?? ABBYY and ReadIris already has this flaw. I need to cross check the text before I export to a file. How many pages can it handle? Mixed languages in the text, how does it handle that?

Thank you for your review. Our Cisdem OCRWizard can handle 4 languages at the same time. And about for "How many pages can it handle?" There are no number of pages limited. If you want to know more, you could send the e-mail to support@cisdem.com and our supporter will tell you the detail.
