Hebrew OCR, which is the ability to convert Hebrew scripts to editable formats, is a relatively new option that many OCR software still do not support it out of the box. ReadIRIS was the first major OCR application to offer support for Hebrew optical character recognition on the PC platform. More recently, ABBYY FineReader has introduced an option for Hebrew OCR in version 11.

Both ABBYY and IRIS also offer Hebrew OCR options in their enterprise server OCR solutionsFineReader Serverand IRISDocument Server. In both cases support for Hebrew OCR is optional, so when purchasing be sure to select the correct version. The links below will take you directly to versions that support Hebrew OCR.
