OCR stands for Optical Character Recognition. ABBYY PDF Transformer uses ABBYY’s OCR technologies for intelligent PDF files processing to ensure high conversion quality. OCR is also required to process PDFs with text in non-standard encoding and to convert PDF images created by scanners or MFPs into Microsoft Office documents or searchable PDF files. More about OCR.
ADRT® (Adaptive Document Recognition Technology) is ABBYY’s breakthrough technology which reproduces the logical internal structure of an entire document. ADRT ensures higher quality retention of document layouts and makes OCR intelligent enough to deliver documents in native Microsoft Office document formatting. Thanks to ADRT technology, PDF Transformer 3.0 preserves original structure and layout of a document – headers and footers, page numbers, footnotes, fonts and font style, images/table/diagrams, links and hyperlinks. So you do not need to recreate all these elements and reformat the document after conversion.
ABBYY PDF Transformer is the optimal addition to ABBYY FineReader. While FineReader is a professional OCR program that provides professional conversion of scanned documents, digital camera images and PDF files, into editable formats, PDF Transformer will let you as well create new PDFs out of standard applications, adjust existing PDF files or combine them together.
Yes. PDF Transformer makes information from your PDF files available for editing in most modern office programs. Once converted to RTF (Rich Text Format), the document can be opened in any text processing application, including such programs as Word Perfect or OpenOffice.org. In addition, you are still able to save the conversion results in other formats supported by PDF Transformer like HTML or TXT. With PDF Transformer you can also create PDFs from any application that supports the Print function by using PDF-XChange 4.0 for ABBYY printer.
Screenshot Reader is a convenient “quick OCR” utility which is able to quickly capture screenshots and convert a screen images to text. It is a practical screenshot making tool that can as well extract short text parts, tables, or images from Web pages, flash presentations, Windows Explorer file menus, or error messages. Screenshot Reader is also helpful when you want to pull small quotes or a few sentences from a PDF or image file. Screenshot Reader is very popular and ABBYY sells it via online shop. If you register PDF Transformer 3.0 you receive this application as a bonus.
ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0 can process any type of PDF files, including image only PDFs created by scanners or multifunction and all-in-one peripherals, and PDFs with non-standard encoding, tagged PDF, PDF/A.
ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0 allows you to do both. You can scroll through the file before conversion and select desired pages. The product is also equipped with an area selection tool that identifies areas on a page and you can choose and adjust the areas needed.
The program follows security settings. You will need to enter the password in order to process password protected file. If the file is protected by a User password, and "content copying or extraction" is allowed, you may convert the PDF file after entering the User password. If "content copying or extraction" is not allowed, only the Author (Owner) of this PDF file can convert it, after entering the Author (Owner) password.
ABBYY PDF Transformer 3.0 includes an improved table reconstruction system and saves content in the same order and layout as they appear in the source file. This can be extremely helpful if you need to edit or correct in Excel financial documents available in PDF. The option “Ignore the text outside tables” allows saving just the tables without the surrounding text.
