Checking and Editing Texts


Once the OCR process is complete, the recognized text appears in the Text window. The characters recognized with low confidence will be highlighted, so that you can easily spot the OCR errors and correct them.

You can edit recognized texts either directly in the Text window or in the Verification dialog box (click Tools > Verification… to open the dialog box). In the Verification dialog box, you can review low-confidence words, correct spelling errors, and add new words to the user dictionary.

ABBYY FineReader also lets you change the formatting of output documents. To format recognized texts, use the buttons on the main toolbar of the Text window or the buttons on the Text Properties pane (right-click anywhere in the Text window and then click Properties on the shortcut menu to display the pane).

Note: When reading a text, ABBYY FineReader identifies the styles used in the text. All the identified styles are displayed in the Text Properties pane. You can edit the styles to quickly change the formatting of the entire text. When saving recognized texts in DOCX, ODT or RTF, all the existing styles can be preserved.
