Hello,



I was just about to download Abbyy Fine Reader Home Edition from Amazon.com when I read at \"system requirements\" that a 100% twain-compatible scanner is needed.

Do I need the scanner to be able to download the software, or just in order to use Abbyy Fine Reader later on ? I don\'t have a scanner yet.



Thanks,

Birgit

Surely the scanner is necessary only... to scan.

Most (if not even all) of them are TWAIN compatible.

Dear Birgit, Oct 24, 2002

You don\'t need a scanner to use FineReader as a standalone application in case you have ready images for text recognition. Of course, you would need a scanner to scan something by yourself.



Best wishes,

Natalia

Hallo Birgit,



um den Fine Reader herunterzuladen, brauchst Du natürlich keinen Scanner. Den Scanner benötigst Du, wenn Du eigene Dokumente nach einer automatischen Texterkennung (OCR) weiterbearbeiten möchtest. Es besteht auch die Möglichkeit, bereits gescannte Dokumente (z.B. im jpg- oder pdf-Format) in den Fine Reader zu laden, um sie zu verändern. Du kannst die neueste Version auch direkt von http://www.abbyy.com erhalten.



Gruß aus D



Michael

download the program Oct 24, 2002

You don\'t need any scanner to download or install the program. You may scan picture format files in your PC. But a scanner is a must when the resolution needs to be increased. Just try it with the files in your PC, it is my favourite OCR program.

Many thanks Oct 24, 2002

Many thanks for all your answers.

I just don\'t understand why they would mention the scanner as system requirement for download.



Thanks again,

Birgit
