OmniPage Pro X's superior accuracy eliminates retyping, saving time and increasing productivity. New PDF functionality lets you convert PDF files to your favorite program or convert paper documents into PDF files. All this, plus improved formatting, table recognition and a host of other innovative capabilities designed to do one thing - make you more productive.


OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh is the most powerful recognition software ever released for Macintosh. It combines the power of two redeveloped engines, using new technologies to share and compare recognition results. This new foundation of technology delivers results that are 40% better than previous Macintosh versions and nearly 50% better than competitive products.

OmniPage Pro extends its recognition capabilities to 59 recognized languages. Improved grayscale performance allows it to create acceptable results on pages so degraded or faded they would have previously been described as unsuitable as sources for OCR processing.

Character vs. Word Accuracy

What is the difference between character and word accuracy? Which measurement should be used when reviewing OCR software? Character accuracy quantifies the OCR application's ability to accurately recognize and convert the characters of a scanned image into editable text. OCR software's character accuracy can be calculated by adding up the number of incorrectly recognized (and missing) characters on a recognized page and dividing that number by the total number of characters on the original page.

Word accuracy quantifies the OCR application's ability to accurately recognize and convert the words of a scanned image into editable text. OCR software's word accuracy can be calculated by adding up the number of incorrectly recognized words (and missing words) on a page and dividing that number by the total number of words on the original page. Both character and word accuracy results are normally expressed as percentages, showing two decimal places (i.e. 99.21%).

The Best Measure of Accuracy?

The best measurement of OCR accuracy is word accuracy. It takes the same amount of time to correct any combination of incorrect characters within a word as it does to simply correct the entire word itself.

Compared to the OCR used even a year ago, accuracy has come a long way. The capability to recognize various font types, sizes and quality has improved dramatically. The more accurate the OCR software, the more time is saved since there is less post recognition editing needed.

New PDF Capabilities

New PDF functionality extends the value beyond the paper world letting you work in ways you never thought possible.

The new PDF functionality is perhaps the greatest example of how versatile OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh truly is. The ability to convert PDF files into their favorite program files actually broadens the importance of OCR and takes it beyond the "scanning utility" realm. Where OCR of the past was viewed as a way to make paper digital, OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh can be viewed as a way to make documents editable - both paper and digital documents. Once a document becomes editable, OmniPage's advanced formatting and editing tools allow it to be incorporated in almost any document and in almost any way. Information is released from its boundaries.

Advantages of PDF

Once the information takes the shape you want, it can then be saved and incorporated into any number of popular file formats. Now, with OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh, files can even be saved as PDF. This allows the user to create files that are editable, searchable, and transferable across platforms. With four types of PDF supported, this is a huge leap forward in OCR versatility. Archival and retrieval has never been easier or more powerful.

An intuitive editor for proofing, the ability to e-mail a recognized document to a colleague and the ability to post a recognized brochure to a Web site are all further examples of OmniPage's versatility. Why stop at word processing, our versatile OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh can do so much more with the OCR results.

Convert from PDF Files

OmniPage's PDF input gives users the freedom to convert PDF files into their favorite program files. With the click of a button, the information locked away in read-only PDF files can be converted to a fully editable file - with all formatting retained. The formatting is crucial, since documents with graphics, tables and columns are often faster to re-create than re-format. There is an entire world of content trapped inside PDF files that we see transmitted every day and posted on the web. Nuance has answered our customers' calls and delivered a quick, clean and easy way to capture and use this information. OCR will never be the same.

Convert paper documents to PDF

PDF output allows users to save any converted page or image file as a PDF document. This is the first time PDFs have been created using the incredibly accurate OmniPage Pro OCR engine. The superior accuracy and formatting ability mean that your PDF files will look just like the paper (or file) they were converted from. No need to reformat and no need to waste time with excessive proofing. Create archives that are fully searchable and fully transferable across platforms. OmniPage Pro X for Macintosh makes it easy.
