Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

ABBYY FineReader PDF reviews

FineReader PDF scanned and OCRed large technical documents with tables and fine print. It was a great surprise to see it recommend using a higher resolution scan in some cases. The higher resolution worked well. I used the "reverse even pages" option and it automatically re-orded scanned pages properly.

This software is incredible. I needed a way to scan documents from languages not in the FineReader database. This software provided the simple tools to select all characters in a new language. I work with native languages in the remote areas of Honduras and Nicaragua. There are no tools for scanning in Miskitu. There are many things printed, but the character set contains elements that are not in standard languages, such as Spanish. This software enables me to choose the language name and then select its character element base. When the software reads the scanned sheet it always picks up the correct elements and I have a copy in Word that can be edited.

I like the OCR and all functions included in this product. I appreciated the easier use and the immediate work with it. I can suggest acquiring it to work easily and speed.

PDF-XChange Editor reviews

It sounds corny, but I now look forward to working with PDF files. The software has worked flawlessly. With it, I get my work done quickly and easily. As I said, for some reason, the work (at least, this part of my work) almost seems fun when using PDF-XChange.

- Scott S. Principal Consultant

Fantastic - which is why i have taken the time for a review.

- Norman N. Director

Pros & cons

ABBYY FineReader PDF

Cons"The main drawback of ABBYY FineReader is the inability to view the history of document changes in your account
The second minus is that there is no tool for merging several files into one
The preview does not work, there is no tool to merge several files into one, often manual editing is required
ABBYY FineReader is much inferior to Adobe Acrobat Pro
We use this tool for scanning hard copies of surveys, questionnaires, CVs and all kinds of standard documents such as contracts."

Pros"I like the fact that developers monitor their product: they constantly fix bugs, add new useful features and modify old ones
The product is just nice to use
I love that this tool lets me convert reams of printed docs into softcopies that I can save and save in my PC
It also allows you to export to multiple file formats in addition to Microsoft Word
What I like most about this software is the amount of time we save by using it
Best OCR reader for translators of complicated documents."

PDF-XChange Editor

Love how easy this is to use, its affordable and works in business and personal use
PDF Xchange is a good, free option if you want to edit PDFs, without paying for Adobe Acrobat
PDF XChange editor is the most useful and affordable software that one can desire in 2020 and 2021
It has all you need for work, editing and manipulating PDF document
I'm more than happy to recommend PDF-XChange to anyone
It's cheap, reliable and is constantly being updated to keep up with hanging demands."

I'm struggling to find a fault with the software
Thus far, I haven't found a feature that's disappointed me
The application has a weak point, when you upgrade the program, it will overwrite some files, what you customized, example titrules.js
Dislike that some features that are available in Adobe Reader are not available here
Really bad product and even worse customer service."
