Question about ABBYY Software House ABBYY FineReader Professional 9.0 Full Version for PC

2 Answers

Perhaps this is an elementary question, and reflects my ignorance, but I don't think so. I'd appreciate help. When I use Fine Reader 9 to convert an image to MS Word, some of the letters -- lots of them -- show in a blue background, i.e., highlghted in blue. I cannot find any way to get rid of this blue highlight, either by any command in FR9 or in Word. I have tried to get rid of this blue highlight by converting the text to WordPerfect, but that does not help, and there is nothing I can do in WordPerfect to get rid of the highlight, either. And of course, the document prints with those letters surrounded by a gray background (my printer is B&W). This makes FR9 useless for generating documents that I may want to send to anyone else, unless I go through the document manually and change every letter that has this background/highlight. I may as well retype the entire document. Thank you for any assistance or advice. -- Joe Dipierro

    it4u's suggestion to use the spell check seemed like a good idea, but it turns out not to help. Thanks for trying. Spell check skips over words with highlighted letters. As to copying to Notepad, I'm trying to avoid that, because it destroys all formatting and makes the whole process so much less productive.

    Douglessd, thanks for a very logical approach, but it's not correct. The offending highlighted text definitely is text and not graphics. When I copy the document to unformatted text, it copies as text.

    Of course, I too have been assuming that the reason for the highlights is that AABBY has doubt about their accuracy. Oddly, those highlighted characters include very few errors. Whether they include more errors than the rest of the text, I can't calculate at the moment, as I am away from the computer on which it's installed. But it would be a close call.

    The frustrating thing is that AABBY seems to be the most respected of the commonly used OCR programs. I can't guess what all the other users must be doing. AABBY 6 doesn't do this-- at least the freeware (with limited capabilities) version doesn't.

I don't know much about Abby FineReader but I have a hunch it is failing to recognize all of the text in your document. So the text in MS Word with the blue background is actually a graphic and not text at all.

I also think if you save the document (from word) as text you will get a warning that you will loose formatting etc and then when you open the resulting text document the blue background text will simply be missing. This is because .txt files can't support graphics. Anyway that will prove my theory.

If this is true then the only place you can solve this problem is when you do the OCR. I assume you are scanning a plain paper document? Make sure you have the resolution of the scan set up as high as it will go. Start of with a really sharp test document that you have printed your self. Perhaps even with a slightly larger font. This will let you practice on what settings give you the best success.

I have made quite a few asumptions here about what you are trying to achieve. Hopefully I have guessed well :)

Let us know how you go.

    Hi Joe,

    Yours would be the best description and responce I have seen here :)

    Can you post an example Word document somewhere we can find it.
    Obvously one with nothing personal in it.

    We might be able to find the trick with MS Word to reset the formatting back to normal.

Hi There,
The blue hilighted text are the characters that the application considers suspect. There are two options I can think of for you:
1: use spell check and manual correction by clicking on each and choosing the corrrect character.
2.: save or copy the document as text in windows' notepad which will remove formatting then copy to Word.

I hope this is helpful for you.

Did you already re-sync?
"After you change the battery, be sure to put the key in the ignition and start the car so it will re-sync."

Microwave shuts off and reflects f-9.

F 9 means Fault Code 9. This means that the Microwave has developed a "Fault" and the "Brain" has determined what it "Thinks" the problem is and outputs that "Code" so a serviceman can consult the manual, to find the exact "Fault". In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
