ABBYY announces new OCR SDK for Linux

ABBYY has announced the availability of ABBYY FineReader Engine 9.0 for Linux, a robust software development kit (SDK) to integrate ABBYY optical character recognition (OCR), barcode recognition, and PDF conversion technologies into Linux-based applications.

‘With many business-critical applications running on Linux nowadays, the quality and reliability of Linux-based software technologies becomes of utmost importance,’ said Andrey Isaev, director of the technology products department at ABBYY. ‘ABBYY FineReader Engine SDK delivers complete set of technologies to integrate truly accurate and comprehensive OCR functionality in the Linux environment yet provides qualified technical support and protection from a variety of possible additional expenses such as those related with implementation, upgrade issues, and customer dissatisfaction.’

ABBYY FineReader Engine 9.0 SDK for Linux supports multiple output formats, more than 190 languages, more than 15 1D barcode types and several 2D types (including PDF 417), and can detect them at any page orientation. The new SDK delivers unique ABBYY ADRT (Adaptive Document Recognition Technology), an intelligent synthesis algorithm for reproducing logical structure and original formatting of multipage documents when exporting to Office formats. By treating an entire multipage document as a single entity rather than a set of pages, ABBYY ADRT accurately re-creates logical elements of document structure such as headers, footers, page numbering, footnotes, and font styles across pages.
