What's New

Improved accuracy in digital camera image recognition and document layout
OmniPage is the hallmark in document conversion accuracy and continues to improve with every new version.  OmniPage Ultimate delivers, for example, an astounding average increase of 25% in OCR accuracy of digital camera images.

OmniPage is also capable of automatically detecting whether the incoming image is from a digital camera and applies the appropriate 3D Correction technology for the best recognition result.  Layout conversion also continues to improve, to faithfully reproduce your documents in a variety of output formats, with special attention to book formats when using the ePub format for mobile devices.

OmniPage Launchpad
OmniPage is all about saving you time and it just got faster, easier and more convenient.  The Launchpad application opens very fast. Before you even have time to react you will have the full power of OmniPage conversions at your fingertips.  Now the quickest way to convert any kind of documents and send to any destination is by clicking on action buttons in the revolutionary tablet like Launchpad.  How many applications give you that kind of power in so little time?

OmniPage® DocuDirect™: Supports shared Microsoft Server environments
OmniPage DocuDirect is the perfect low cost solution for occasional document scanning, conversion and document routing for small businesses or workgroups that share a scanning device. It allows you to get the most out of low volume scanning devices like some digital copiers, MFPs, and All-in-One devices that have limited document conversion and network document routing capability.

OmniPage DocuDirect can be installed on a network server or shared computer that is connected to one of these devices and can automatically send converted files to a predefined destination, multiple destinations or on-demand to anyone, anywhere using barcode workflows created with the OmniPage Workflow Assistant.

Most productive and accurate conversion to Searchable PDF
PDF files are everywhere and can come from a variety of sources. They can include scanned pages, embedded images, and text based information. Some of these elements don’t include searchable text but it is not obvious to most people and therein lays the problem. Using a typical OCR process to create what’s known as a Searchable PDF is a solution but it only works on scanned PDF documents that have not been altered. Forcing an OCR process on text based PDF files will unintentionally destroy text elements in order to create a Searchable PDF format.

To solve the problem of creating Searchable PDFs from files on disk without damaging existing text elements we created the eDiscovery Assistant for searchable PDF in OmniPage.  This process intelligently analyzes PDF files of all kinds and determines only those PDF files, or pages in a PDF file that require an OCR process. We have migrated this very productive functionality into OmniPage DocuDirect so the process can be centrally located using a watched folder on a server and handled automatically.

Go mobile and listen to documents with natural sounding speech
OmniPage has been upgraded with Nuance’s most sophisticated and naturally sounding speech so that you can comfortably listen to any document being read to you through your iPhone, iPad, Android or other mobile device that support MP3 audio files.

Read your document on your favorite eBook reader 
OmniPage has been updated to support the popular ePub format that is compatible with popular eBook readers.  Now you can quickly convert documents and take them anywhere you go to be read with eBook applications on the Apple iPad, Android Tablets, Microsoft Surface, Nook Simple Touch, Nook Tablet, Sony Reader PRS-350/PRS-650/PRS-950, Kobo eReader, Kobo Touch and Kobo Arc.

Create reliable document archives with enhanced PDF/A support
OmniPage is an ideal solution for creating searchable PDF documents for long term archival using the PDF/A format. OmniPage now offers new PDF/A output options such as PDF/A-2b and PDF/A-2u to support your document archival policies.

"I'm a labor arbitrator and mediator, a sole practitioner in private practice without a secretary or assistant. I communicate with my union and management clients almost exclusively by e-mail, sending them my decisions, invoices, rulings on motions, and other documents as PDF attachments created or modified with OmniPage.

In addition, I frequently use OmniPage's outstanding OCR capabilities to quickly copy portions of labor contracts and other documents that I need to quote in my decisions. Because of OmniPage's ease of use and reliability, it's become an indispensable part of my office."

-- Doug Collins

"The recognition capability of the new OmniPage Ultimate Beta I have been using is far superior to my prior version and it is amazingly fast.  I've been able to scan poor quality FAX files and PDF image files with very good accuracy requiring much less manual intervention."

-- Stephen Goldberg

"Being involved with Genealogy I do a lot of OCR’ing of PDF files. I have found that this new version is doing a much faster and more accurate results with a lot less spelling errors. I can see where the Launchpad will be useful on a touch screen or where one has a lot of repeat type of work. I will use the “Web to PDF” a lot in preparing the different files I need in doing Genealogy files. Being a Kindle Fire owner, I will be using the ePub a lot to share some of my data files.
The “Help” and “How to Guides” are very well written, easy to understand and maneuver."

-- David C. Abernathy

"The new OmniPage Ultimate is easy to use, very intuitive, fast, accurate and stuffed full of ways to handle and convert documents. The last version was really good and this one blows it away."

-- Boyd Harrell

"I used OmniPage Ultimate to convert a complex table from PDF format into a Word document. Using the “Flowing Page” format option resulted in a startling accurate editable reproduction of the document. And, this was all accomplished super-fast, less than 30 seconds. Such accuracy of conversion from PDF to Word saves me several hours of typing and/or data entry every week."

-- Joel Harper

"This is a great release, many new features and improved functions.

The best feature is the ability to OCR a picture of a document. While there are "apps" to grab a solid picture, the ability to render editable text is the best yet. Keep on developing; it's a great product."

-- Don Ahlstedt

"OmniPage Ultimate is the BEST OCR SOFTWARE WITHOUT DOUBT! Its accuracy is phenomenal compared to previous OmniPage versions. This accuracy saves time and frustration and makes me more productive. For example a 430-page document is a breeze with OmniPage Ultimate."

-- Ian McGrath
