Important! Disclaimer for Internet Explorer users/Known Issue
Due to the known limitations of Internet Explorer 11, you may observe the issues while processing more than 100 pages or having numerous verification tasks with ABBYY FlexiCapture. Using Internet Explorer browser for an extended period of time can cause the browser to consume a lot of the machine's memory and slow down the client performance and eventually crash the browser.
To avoid the unwanted interruptions of ABBYY FlexiCapture processing tasks ABBYY recommends you to use Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or other browsers for the professional verification tasks. Nevertheless, ABBYY FlexiCapture web-stations are fully functioning in Internet Explorer 11, thus they should be used for ad-hoc processing preferably.
Important notes for users of Internet Explorer
- In the event of a verification malfunction, the operator will not be able to resume the task immediately after the session is restored. This task will become available only after the inactive sessions have been purged. By default, inactive sessions are purged every 4 hours. You can change this setting in the web.config file on the Processing Server. We do not recommend purging inactive sessions too often. The recommended minimum setting is 10 minutes.
- Starting from FlexiCapture R3 Update 1, each new task is opened in a new tab to optimize memory use. However, this also means that operators will not be able to receive new tasks automatically. To revert to the old behavior, open the web.config file for the web station and set the IEVerificationNewWindow key to false.
- In Internet Explorer 11, users will not be able to enter Japanese text using the corresponding Microsoft IME.
