I learned to use Abbyy FineReader by myself starting about 4 years ago. I went through a learning curve, and I keep learning. I started with a few small books and then a few 500 page books. I have now completed an 1800 page Latin / French Missal, dual columns, tables, pictures, etc. I created my own user dictionary of almost 12000 words. All this on an old Intel Pentium CPU G860 @ 3.00GHz with 8M RAM!!! I have now started work on a 2000 page Spanish / Latin Missal, having imported the same user dictionary I had created.
Thank you FineReader 14 & 15.
