ABBYY to Showcase Digitisation in Action with Partners at BETT 2013

Theale, UK (17 January 2013) ABBYY, a leading provider of document recognition, data capture and linguistic technologies and services, will be exhibiting at BETT, the UK's largest education technology tradeshow. ABBYY will be joined by HoverCam, which will be on hand to demonstrate its leading document scanner products, and Proactive Learning, distributor of many leading audio/visual products to schools and educational institutions.

ABBYY text recognition software, such as FineReader and Recognition Server, provides intuitive tools for digitising documents and converting scans, photographs and PDF files into editable and searchable electronic formats. These productivity and efficiency tools are a time-saving alternative to manual retyping and help unlock content from paper and images.

Many people working in education can benefit from using ABBYY FineReader OCR software. Teachers and administrative staff use FineReader to more easily convert documents for use in making exam/study materials or for creating searchable archives of important documents. SENCOs and ICTs use FineReader to convert books and other study materials to text that can be used with assistive technologies, such as text-to-speech software, to improve the lives of students with learning and physical impairments.

The HoverCam together with ABBYY FineReader Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software provides a powerful tool in the coping strategies of those with special needs. It allows students and support workers to easily convert printed documents to speech and useable text whether at home, in the classroom or on the move. As a special promotion, a bundle of ABBYY FineReader 11 and the HoverCam T5 will be on offer at a reduced price for visitors who make a purchase or register their interest at the show*.

"BETT is an important showcase for both evolving technologies and new solutions," says James Nelson of HoverCam United Kingdom. "We are using this year's show to launch the first solution bundle from our technology partnership with ABBYY. For more than a decade ABBYY has lead the way in Optical Character Recognition software and today we have taken this guaranteed performance and combined it with our unique document camera to offer a truly portable OCR solution."
