updated 09:35 am EST, Mon January 14, 2008

IRIScan USB OCR scanner

I.R.I.S. Group has announced the release of the IRIScan 2, a portable full document scanner. The compact, light sheet-fed scanner is USB-powered and fits any laptop suitcase, according to the company. Available in both Express and Executive versions, the IRIScan 2 comes with an extended suite of applications to manage paper documents, including Readiris Pro 11 PC and/or Mac, the latest versions of IRIS' OCR software. The software will recognize documents text information and generate a PDF or an editable Office document. The scanner is designed to scan from small-sized paper documents (e.g. business cards) up to letter size documents at resolutions of up to 1200 dpi (color, grayscale or black/white). The scanner has two useful buttons, one allowing you to scan directly into Readiris, the other to launch Cardiris when you scan a business card.

In addition, the device includes I.R.I.S. Desktop Search, which allows users to quickly find any document using only a few keywords. The included Cardiris Pro 4 software recognizes, sorts and exports scanned business cards into contacts that can be used in any of the popular contact management applications.

The software suite also includes @Promt for full document translation software -- in 11 different language pairs.

IRIScan 2 Express is available for 90 ($130), while the Executive version bundles Windows-only photo capture software and @Promt translation software for $200/200.

    I.R.I.S. Support

    Is lousy. I've written them, faxed, emailed, phoned over and over. But all I ever get is sales pitches.

    I've told them flat out... if you don't answer my support calls, I cannot recommend that we buy your products.

    And when I found out that the HP OCR software is made by I.R.I.S., and I couldn't get that working either... I called HP to complain. I got a nice call from some VP there, and let them know about my experience. I just suggested he call their support line, and if he gets a call back to please ask them to call me too!

    I will never buy another I.R.I.S. product again!

    Period!
