ABBYY FineReader Engine 11 for Windows - Release 4
Back-up possibility for the network license server (network license redundancy)
Now a backup license server can be set up to take over the license management if the main license server breaks down. Thanks to fail-proof redundant license server the continuous processing on all workstations in a network can be guaranteed.
Export to memory
Due to company's security restrictions it might be prohibited to save documents on disk. The recognized documents can now be sent as a file stream directly to other applications.
New profile for faster barcode recognition (speed)
The processing of documents with barcodes can be faster when using the predefined profile for barcode recognition optimized for speed.
Technical preview of a new OCR language - Farsi.
The new Farsi OCR
language is now available as technical preview. (Arabic OCR Add-on module needs to be licensed).
Possibility to enable and disable interpolation in PDF viewers
Interpolation in PDF viewers can affect the visual quality of PDF file. Now you can decide whether the interpolation should be disabled or enabled.
New property for shadows and highlights correction in photographs
During the image pre-processing step, the quality of the photograph can be optimized by correcting excessive shadows and uneven lighting.
Improved recognition quality by removing color objects during pre-processing stage
This feature is useful for documents with black text and white background that contain colored elements (e.g. stamps) that don’t need to be recognized. Color objects on the image can be filtered out before the layout analysis and recognition steps. After the processing is complete the color objects can be put back on the image.
Support of corrupted tiff files opening
Often it is not possible to influence the quality of image files. In some specific cases it is now possible to open TIFF images even they are corrupted.
Possibility to save images to PNG with transparent background
You don't need an image editing tool anymore for creating an image with a transparent background.
The changing of the GUI forms height of some code samples
A scroll has been added to the main form of Image Preprocessing sample to better fit to monitors with small display size. The heights of GUI
forms of BCR, Camera OCR and samples were adjusted to fit the screens with vertical resolution equal to 800 pixels.
New method for extended parameters of image saving
The method allows to set extended parameters of image saving when creating the MultipageImageWriter object.
New attribute ‘rotation’ in xml export scheme
New attribute ‘rotation’ in ‘page’ tag defines the type of rotation applied to original page image before processing.
New property for page breaks
The new property specifies if the page breaks must be retained in the output RTF document.
Realization of EnginesPool sample on Java is changed
The realization EnginesPool sample on Java has been changed due to new implemented methods for loading from memory in OutprocLoader.
Old version of EnginesPool sample will not run with this release of FineReader Engine. If you used code snippets from this sample in production please consider that it is necessary to replace EnginesPool.java file by its new realization. The interfaces are left intact. It is sufficient to replace EnginesPool.java class and to rebuild the project.
