What people are saying about us

The best one out there

jasondv - 10 Dec. 2017

I've downloaded three other apps after reading reviews about how those new ones are the "best" but I keep going back to TextGrabber after comparing their output based on the same scan/photo. TextGrabber always produces the most accurate scans, and preserves the formatting as well.

One of ABBY’s best products

Cardinal 55 - 9 Dec. 2017

While I have had my gripes about ABBYY’s price and what I believe is a clear loss in the quality of the apps (ie it’s still hard to find better desktop software!), I nonetheless have to say this app is excellent. I am a PhD candidate in the humanities, and had to pass four research languages in order to complete the program. That meant I had to learn to translate quickly, and recognize common phrases in each language. If one is looking for the parsing or definition of a word then a lexicon is best, but if one needs to actually translate and work through sentence structure, then this is one of the most helpful apps I’ve found. I continue to use it for quick translation or to check my own rendering. *i do echo previous comments regarding whether the app utilizes the hardware of the latest iPhone effectively (it doesn’t); the iPhones have the best cameras on the market, and yet the ABBYY apps seem to struggle to take decent pictures. Sadly, it’s often easier and more accurate to take a picture with the native camera app and then import into the suite of ABBYY apps. (I have received multiple responses to this issue telling me I’m doing it wrong, but I have an actual lighting setup and a device that holds the phone over the page...I’m sure I will get corrected again 🙄 but there is some difference - that said ABBYY is still the best available).
