ABBYY FineReader is an OCR software program.

Content providers (CPers) report ABBYY FineReader v.5.0 or newer works well for Distributed Proofreaders projects; however, some CPers report that v.8 is more difficult to use than v.7. Older versions of ABBYY FineReader are frequently available from online sites (such as eBay) at a much better price than the current version. See ABBYY FineReader's website.
