What are people saying about Readiris Pro

Albert C. LMAO @ free upgrades for 1 month... :tape:

Also, what are the specifics about email activation? Do I have to wait for customer support answer before I can activate? Is that code that you send reusable in the same computer if I ever format the hard drive? Or would I have to resend an email to ask for activation code again?

Thanks for answering my questions! ^_^
Apr 21 2011 at 3:24am Copy Link
IRIS Inc. Yes, if we are nearing the end of the product versions life cycle and you made a purchase we will upgrade you for free to the latest version if that purchase was made within 30 days of the new release.

The activation can be done on your own using the registration button which brings you to our site to fill out a short form. There is also a video showing exactly how to register if you are not sure. IRIS also provides 30 days of full use without the key for the rare occasions when a customer needs to contact technical support for the key.

The key code will be different upon each install as that is the only way to ensure one download link is not posted or shared on the internet and given out for free for all to use.

I will be happy to answer any other questions.

IRIS Inc. - Apr 21 2011 at 3:39am Copy Link
O I What's the exact price for European users? Can I rely on the advertised price of $59 US for this deal in Europe?

On your store when I choose any other country than US, price appears as $148.08 US or 106.61 EUR (excluding VAT), which is far above $129 US price. Why is that difference?
Apr 21 2011 at 9:13am Copy Link
IRIS Inc. The price will be different but you will still get a substantial discount. For instance the discount goes to 79.00 Euro in France.

We are an international company and the prices are set by each regional office. This specific promotion is being run by the US office and while we do not control the sale price in Europe we did not want to exclude any of Bits du Jour's customers. I hope this clears up any confusion.

Alex Mercier I have an HP scanner and would like to use a simple software to help me have PDF of my documents instead of papers. I understand that it is what the software does. How well does it do it, I am not sure?
IRIS has been around for a long time. I also know that my HP scanner comes with Readiris pro 11 and I love it!
I read that version 12 is reworked so simple tasks can almost be automated (their website talks about "smart tasks"). Say you always do the same scanning to PDF, this version seems to be designed to be doing just that but without all the clicks... I'll give it a try!

Software Guy Readiris 12 has been out since 2009 and can be found on sale for $79 on your site - check here

so this begs the question - when are you releasing 13? will bits dujour users get to upgrade to 13 if they take advantage of this offer? reason being, we have been offered software at discount by other vendors only to have them introduce the newer version several months later (Arcadia software recently offered on bits dujour comes to mind here ). the total cost of the discount plus the upgrade was approximately equal to retail, so it was actually no deal at all. 30 days isn't a very good upgrade policy, as most companies offer 1 year. But 30 days looks really bad when a new version is offered shortly after the promotion upgrade period expires. Some companies call this creative marketing, but with the competition offered at steep discounts, users do not feel that way. this is why:

Software companies know when they are going to release updated versions - so please tell us - when is V13 coming out? Are we going to get about a year before the new version? The whole idea behind bits dujour is to offer current software at a steep discount, offering members a bargain while increasing the customer base for the vendors. But when they offer a software title at the end of its life cycle, it leaves a bad taste knowing you just paid too much. And the discounted old software plus an upgrade which is offered at the combined equivalent of retail is no deal at all. And readiris 12 is coming up on a solid 2 years.
Sorry to put you on the spot but an upgrade policy of 30 days just begs the question. Thanks.

Michael K Software Guy has made all the right points and asked the key question about the timing of the next version release. Bravo Software Guy...I keenly await the answer to your question.

It also raises an interesting point. Perhaps BDJ would consider getting an undertaking from the Companies they promote to always always give BDJ purchasers at least twelve months of FREE upgrades in return for broadening their customer base through BDJ.

This would mean there would be no need for us to ever ask the upgrade question again and we could buy from BDJ safe in the knowledge of always being on the latest version of the software for at least 1 year.

Thanks Software Guy and BDJ.

Frank Stephens O I, Google is your friend. The current version of all of the major OCR packages have been out for some years. PC Magazine has reviews of the higher-end Readiris package, Readiris Corporate 12, as well as Omnipage Pro 17 and ABBYY Finereader 10 Professional. Overall, they like Finereader best, followed closely by Omnipage, so I doubt that you would want to purchase an additional OCR package. For most users here on BDJ, it's the price/performance ratio that matters, so this Readiris offer may be a good deal. Since I have Omnipage Pro, it doesn't make sense for me to buy another OCR package (unless I find a great offer on Finereader).

Software Guy There are three big OCR packages and a free one. The big ones are ABBYY Finereader, Nuance Omnipage and ReadIris. The freebie is simpleOCR . I use all of the packages, and each has its advanyages and disadvantages. If you are an intensive OCR user, then spend the money and get Finereader - it is the most consistent in producing the best results with fewest errors. We use Finereader to scan books (use the Plustek Bookscanner) to doc files to be converted to text to speech (IMHO the Ivona voices are the best). If you are a Dragon Naturally Speaking user, then use omnipage as they offer update discounts and bundles. If you are an occasional user and do not want to sink too much money into your OCR, then use ReadIris. At $59 today, Readiris is the clear cost to value winner. It is a great deal and easily the best cost to value at this price. For infrequent use, the free simpleOCR works adequately but requires (sometimes considerable) cleanup.
In my opinion the accuracy goes:
FinereaderOmnipageReadirissimpleOCR BUT with decent input to work with they all give very good results. It is as the input quality of the scan deteriorates that the differences really begin to show.

The developer might clarify the licensing - it is a per user with hardware footprint. The question is - how many machines is the user permitted to install - desktop plus laptop plus netbook - before a footprint transfer is required? AND, is a family pack license available so wife/kids may use?

Hope this info is helpful to some BDJ users.

Roger Thomasson Prices often change depending on the country. This is not something we (or the vendor) necessarily have control over, sorry! Many of these taxes and fees are levied by the purchasers' country, and they can be quite substantial. Nothing we can do about them, and we certainly don't expect our vendors to bear the cost.

Regardless, keep in mind that there is still a substantial discount no matter what your country of residence.

Peter S Well I'll throw my weight behind many of the comments and IRiS' [] EXTREMELY MiSLEADiNG promotion :

Shame on IRiS [] I don't believe it is the fault of Bitsdujour as Bits'is merely the conveyor and not the actual merchant.

I always buy my software in US Dollars as i don't know which country I'll be in at the time of purchase but when this deal is for the country of delivery of Australia the purchasing currency is ONLY available as Australian - no choice offered - WHiCH iS RiDiCULOUS GiVEN THE SOFTWARE Can BE DOWNLOADED, and the prices are as follows:

$148.61 AUD
- $57.60 AUD
=$91.01 AUD

At a time when the Australian dollar buys more than the US Dollar why isn't the Australian discount actually the same (USD$70) or even slightly greater???

M M I concur with previous comments. For most Central and Eastern Europe countries the price is €80, down from regular €130, not even close to 54% off, or $59 per license.

Consider this when reading about software piracy outside of US, if the price in much poorer countries is so much higher.

And you can pay only in €, regardless if local currency is € or other (why not $, if possible for some other countries like Croatia???).

Very bad pricing policy, no deal though I was highly interested.

Amit I guess I am overestimating this product or anything - but I dont think this software can be any helpful in converting physical hard books to digital form - or say ebook form. Readiris might be just a scanner / Ocr solution and it may not be able to do this - like other softwares.

Except you are ready to stand for hours and scan each page for hours.

Or can Readiris or any similar software convert physical books to digital form by any easy way ?
Oct 5 2012 at 4:31am Copy Link
disenchanted @Amit

It sounds like you are asking if this product can do a task that is very similar to a task I recently did.

To scan several paper pages from a book, let Readiris identify the words on the pages using it's OCR capabilities, then compile all those words into a book which is in an electronic form, like a PDF file.

I had a few hard cover reference books that i wanted to convert to electronic form.
The scanner I had came with readiris V11.

The books were reference books I bought at a library book sale.
I removed/cut all the pages from the books and scanned them with a duplex scanner and OCR'd them with Readiris V11.

The readiris V11 (that came with my scanner) did a fairly accurate job of OCR'ing the book pages.

After the OCR was finished, I had to go through and review any words that were not correctly identified.(it did a good job of accurately OCR'ing the scanned pages. Very few words were incorrectly OCR'd.

All in all, readiris did a good job.

I compiled all of the 1000+ pages of OCR'd pages into a few separate word documents.

It was a very time consuming task, but Readiris WAS able to accomplish it just fine.

To answer your question, readiris CAN be used to convert a paper book into a book of electronic format, like a PDF or word document.
Please note: I was only concrned with obtaining the TEXT that was in the book.
I was NOT concerned, nor did I try, to scan any pictures within the paper books.
Oct 5 2012 at 5:16am Copy Link
Amit Thanks but what you may have done - was time consuming and quite some work to do. Scanning all the pages one by one.

And any software like abbyy too will do this as well.

What I was finding for is there some way - maybe buying additional hardware even - that can make the MANUAL work of sitting all along and scanning all the pages one by one EASY.

I have quite a no. of books I want in digital form - but the time and work to do all the scanning seems the obstacle.

Dont know how the kindle books are made (out of physical books).
Oct 5 2012 at 9:13am Copy Link
disenchanted @ Amit

I used 2 different auto-feed scanners, both Canon brand.

The larger one was a $8,000.00 scanner and could scan
200 pages per minute. Both sides scanned on a single pass.

So the scanning was easy and very fast.

But in order to scan the book, the pages were
"permanently removed" and stacked into the scanner.

If you want to keep the paper books inside their binder, for reading, then removing the pages is probably not an option.

Many books are available in PDF (electronic) format.
PDF format book would be what you probably want.

Regarding kindle books, they are made from software and the file format is saved in the format the kindle can input and read.

Much like creating a document on your computer using
MS Word and then printing it as a pdf file.

Amit thanks disenchanted. But $8000 scanner looks too much.

The software used for kindle but - I would have to look for some search on it.
Oct 6 2012 at 6:26am Copy Link
Software Guy Amit - the plustek obticbook series might work for you. The 3600 series does the job and is about as fast as you can keep track of things. The 4600 really rocks. They are page by page but it is fast with the special edge technology scanning. Side one, flip for side 2, turn page for next side then flip - about the time it takes to turn the page is the time it takes for the scanbar to reset. great for nondestructive scanning. Or pay a few bucks to a starving highschool/college student to do it for you so you don't need to sit there. But the opticbooks are great when sitting watching the news - sort of mindless activity that comes quickly once you get past the initial learning curve. The opticbook scanners come with a special edition - meaning older slimmed version - of abbyy but it works just fine.
Now if these are expendable books or stuff you can get cheap used on amazon or ebay, cut the pages, drop them into a Fujitsu duplex scanner and walk away - when you come back you are ready to run your OCR. Then run the doc file through a text to speech engine and you don't even need to read the book - just listen on your mp3 player.
Now a word on the OCRs - Readiris pro is easily the best bang for the buck. If money is no object, get abbyy. Finally, get Omnipage if you are a Dragon Naturally Speaking user - they offer money saving bundle discounts but they 'upgrade' far too often. Just don't upgrade when they want you every other one or don't upgrade at all if the software meets your needs.
Bottom line: for $64.50 you really can't beat readiris pro. And when you factor in the user license it is simply a great deal.
Oct 6 2012 at 5:20pm Copy Link
Amit Thanks for your information. Will look into it. Although it looks costly still than what I would have looked for (the hardware).
Oct 8 2012 at 6:08am Copy Link
Software Guy @Amit - there is another option - book scanning services. There are a few online. Often a fee like$15 with 50 pages free then 10 cents per page for non-destructive, about 70% of that for destructive (binding removed). Send them the book and they send the book back with a cd of pdf scans - very similar to photo scanning. Then run the PDFs through an OCR just like Readiris offered today - then you have a doc file. Other than scanning yourself (or paying a student $20-25 per book) that is the cheapest way to go. And they periodically offer 25% off discounts after your first job. Beats buying an expensive scanner that you will then need to sell on ebay at half price.

Upgrades to future versions of the software will be free for 1 month.

That makes no Sense as most software is updated once a year, if even that, so just a 1 month upgrade policy is basically giving no update policy.

I will pass on this as I have the best software for this that came with a handheld scanner. You can choose a part of the screen, web page, etc., or a window, browser. It can do lots of things with the output such as save it to the clipboard, a txt file, Excel, email, file.

It is almost 100% correct if not 100% correct at what it thinks stuff says.

I also have an expensive program I found online that supposedly can read handwriting as well as machine print, but it is a hit or miss program. It also lets you change what it thinks it says to the correct thing and it is supposed to be able to learn from the changes.

Cary Adams You need to rethink having a demo. I use PaperPort and am looking for a replacement for technical reasons. As much as I like to consider your product, I'm not going to hand over even the discounted payment offered here for the purpose of evaluating your program.

The video "demo" on your site is completely useless. That might illustrate how YOU use the product, but it does not address the different ways in which I may need to use the product. And the fact that you have to "register" just to watch the "demo" video is beyond reason.

I also noticed that there are many "missing" features available only on your "Business" product. For example, indexing, watch folders, cloud connectors, and batch scanning using blank paper inserts, are features available on PaperPort's "standard" product.

Please offer fully functional working demo, even if it is limited by date, number of pages per document, or watermark.

IRIS Inc. The $59.99 is only available for specific regions. Sorry!
We are taking good notes on the download inquiry. For the time being, a lot of information are available for evaluation purposes and our support team can quickly answer any specific questions you may have.
The 1 month free upgrade policy only is available should IRIS was to launch V15 within 30 days, which is not going to be the case. Updates are available on an ongoing basis at no additional charge for the Pro version.
Just to clarify, Readiris Corporate 14 offers all the points discussed above and more. You can see a comp chart between Pro and Corporate edition at this link:

Danny Why is that now all so difficult to get the discount process??? Trial version you can also not get, but first buy and then test. Understand that can understand!!!

VLM Jean-Marc Fontaine -

1. I believe that this is the same OCR software that came, in a free/lite version, with the HP 8600 Premium printer we purchased last year. Does this sound correct to you?

2. If we purchase and install this upgrade today, will the printer (scanner) recognize the new software and make use of it rather automatically?

3. May we arrange to pay by sending a prepaid money order, or cash, or via some cash-based system such as PayNearMe? (I've also written off to your customer service department regarding this last question.

Thank you kindly!

We bundle Readiris on a world wide basis with most HP scanners so the answer is YES to question # 1.

The software will install as a stand alone. You will simply scan from Readiris, not from the scanner.

You really need to order through the available methods off our site.

Have a good week-end.

VLM Actually, for religious and moral reasons, I need NOT to order using any of those methods. And I would appreciate your not presuming to tell me what I "need".

I will wait and see whether customer service offers anything else. I have had companies turn on a "money order" option at a payment processor, implement PayNearMe, etc. before, so I always hold that it's possible. :)

I AM interested!

lemonade soda Jean-Marc Fontaine "The $59.99 is only available for specific regions. Sorry!" WELL WHAT REGIONS is that then? Just the US? Why are you wasting so many people's time? Like others, I went through the "buy now" ritual only to have a 0% discount. Good way to lose credibility and damage your brand perception. Why don't you say "US only offer..."

No demo, then what is this?

For anyone else that is ready to put up with this IRIS nonsense, then at least type this into the promo box RI14AFF

Brenton Robinson I am extremely disappointed that this software is available at the discounted price only in certain regions. If software is advertised on BDJ the discount should be available to everyone. The software vendor and BDJ need to look into this. People are wasting their time on something that is ultimately not available.

lemonade soda Trial version direct on IRIS website

Joe M To lemonade soda.
I tried that link a few days ago. All I got was a link to some almost useless videos about the program, not an actual link to download the program to trial it for 15 or 30 days like most programs offered here on BJD. I will pass on this offer unless they at least give a trial version. I will not buy it first, and then try to get a refund within their 30 day period.

VLM Everyone,

FWIW, the bundled version of the Readiris software that comes bundled with our HP printer/scanner does seem to work quite nicely. Bit we haven't challenged it much, either.

Danny "... and then try to get a refund within their 30 day period."

Yes Joe, then still a question or that again no problems! It's just cumbersome hassle!!!
