    En la version anterior habían problemas, pero el soporte de Sandro fue genial!!! Me ayudó en cada momento, de manera rápida y precisa. Lo instalé en OpenSuse 13.1 y funciona de 10!!! Lo recomiendo, en linux, el mejor programa de este tipo (OCR) que me ha funcionado!

    This program works wonderfully! The interface is fairly self-explanatory and it effortlessly and nearly faultlessly translated a 117 page PDF image scan of an out of print book I wanted to get on my Kindle. The only reason I give it four out of five stars is the fact that Norton caught the presence of a virus in the "uninstall" utility of the program. Norton labeled it "Trojan.ADH.X". Not sure why that was put there, and it doesn't inspire much confidence, but Norton caught it -- so please be up to date on your virus protection when you install this download. Other than that it worked perfectly and, as they say, the price was right.

    Fast, simple, great. But one important missing thing is the lack of option to save OCR on pdfs...
