Gains Snow Leopard support

ABBYY has announced that FineReader Express Edition for Mac now supports Snow Leopard. The program is an optical character recognition (OCR) tool, which converts scans and camera images into various files such as XLS spreadsheets, PDF documents and HTML pages. It automatically detects tables and reconstructs them, also providing tools for editing the end result.

The program recognizes 171 languages and language variants, including English, French, German and Italian; 36 have been given dictionary support. Several files can be handled simultaneously, and supported document types include books, magazines and other multi-page material.

With expanded OS compatibility the program now supports any Mac with Mac OS X 10.4 or later, as well as 256MB of RAM and 1GB of free hard drive space. It can be downloaded from the company's online store at a cost of $100.
