prismo vs finereader

Hi all,
Since Prismo is currently on sale, I'm considering getting an OCR app for my Mac. I have some experience with fine reader from Windows with Kurzweil and their standalone app and I also played with the Mac version. Haven't heard much about Prismo but since it's quite a bit cheaper, especially now with the sale they have going, I would be interested to hear from people who used both, which one is better. I'll be mostly scanning printouts that I get from teachers at school, so nothing very difficult to recognise. Input is going to come from a scanner, but through jpg files because the scanner is in another room and my sister handles the scanning on her mac through the mac image capture app then sends me the pictures. Does prismo support scanning images? Also, can it handle other languages than English? How good are the results in comparison?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.


#1 prismo vs finereader

I won't recommend these two. I'd rather recommend you to go for KNFB which is on deal for now.

#2 Mac apps

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm asking about the mac version of the programs. While I heard just how good KNFB is, it wouldn't be very practical for me, having to first get the files off the Mac, transfer them to my old iPod (afaik it doesn't support iPad yet), recognise them, and them put them back on the mac again.

#3 Prismo for mac

I am also wondering about the effectiveness of Prismo for the mac. I will primarily be using it to OCR pdf files, and extract the text from them.

#4 fine reader

I have never used prismo, but I can say from lots of experience, that fine reader pro for the mac is great. I am a college student, in my final semester, and fine reader has everything I need for school. I would look into free trials if i was you. Fine reader should have a limited trial you can play around with at no cost, and the other app might have this as well.

#5 fine reader

I understand what you are saying and I'm sure fine reader works quite well. However, the cost needs to be taken into account here. Although fine reader may offer all the bells and whistles, prismo is more of an affordable option for those who cannot afford fine reader. It is to this end that I ask if its somewhat comprarable to fine reader and more importantly, whether it is voiceover friendly enough to use on a daily basis.
