    Stable and a nice touch is the OCR editing facility to enable manual correction of automated OCR errors. The program would be further enhanced by enabling output of the input PDF image file also as a PDF image file but with the OCR as searchable text layer under the page image; this instead of / as an additional option to the existng PDF output of OCR-only text without image.

    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...
