Readiris Pro is an outstanding option for those who need a PC-compatible OCR software program that will let them create editable text from read-only documents quickly and efficiently. One of the best things about Readiris Pro is the software's ability to keep the original formatting of the document, which saves the user time and frustration that would otherwise be spent reformatting the finished edited product.

Once the user has edited the document and is happy with the result, he or she may publish the item to the web by utilizing the WYSIWYG web editor that is included with the software. The interface of the latest version of Readiris Pro is still easy to use but does look a bit more refined, which is a nice added feature that users will certainly appreciate.

One thing to consider when deciding whether Readiris Pro is the right OCR choice for you is that there are other more accurate options for converting documents into editable text. While Readiris Pro boasts an accuracy rating of higher than 90%, other software, such as ABBYY FineReader, do offer an even higher accuracy rating. This certainly is not enough to deter most potential users who will surely enjoy the features that are included with Readiris Pro and will experience little to no trouble caused by post-conversion formatting issues. Some users question the cost effectiveness of Readiris Pro because they do not use many of the included features.

Pros:

  • Plenty of features included with software.
  • The accuracy rating is excellent.
  • Publishing finished documents to the web is very easy.
  • Formatting is preserved in most cases.

Cons:

  • Several of the included features will not be utilized by the average user.
  • Other applications provide better accuracy.
