Readiris Pro 11
Readiris Pro Editor's Review
If you are in a hurry, you can enable the 'OCR Wizard' at startup in order to speed up the process. When converting documents, you need to specify the source (local or scanner), choose the document language, and choose your output file format. The program can save files in a large variety of formats such as Adobe Acrobat PDF, Microsoft Excel and Word, XML, HTML, TIFF (images), etc. Of course, if you want to save a file in Microsoft Word (DOC) format, you need to install the appropriate encoders (MS Word).
There are a lot of tools and option for you to use in order to customize or enhance the output files. You can rotate the files, ignore exterior zone, as well as draw graphics, tables, or bar code windows, etc. You can also print pictures or use the magnifying glass for detailing.
Another component of the program is 'I.R.I.S. Desktop Search'. This is a quite useful component, which allows you to find quickly favorites, contacts, videos, music, pictures, files, or emails. In case you want to search something on the Internet, the program will open a new Internet Explorer Window and use the 'Copernic' search engine to find results.
Before starting to use this feature, you need to select which folder will be indexed for searching. Another nice thing is that you can integrate it as a toolbar into Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Pluses: The program works very fast and it has a lot of options you can use to get outstanding outputs: 'select and sort text windows', 'merge lines into paragraphs', 'create body text', 'recreate source documents', etc.
Drawbacks / flaws:
In conclusion: A fast, stable, and highly reliable program.
