Don't Just Convert Documents, Transform Them With OmniPage Professional 18
Today, the continued use of paper slows organizations down and frequently leads to "knowledge re-creation." Not only does this waste workers' time--as they're forced to re-create information from existing paper forms or search for misplaced documents--but it is also a drain on overall productivity and profitability.
The question remains: "how can you get the document into the format you want without having to do extensive re-typing or re-editing?"
Now the answer is OmniPage Professional 18. This innovative solution lets you convert paper, PdF files, and forms at lightning speed into documents you can edit on your PC or archive in a document repository. Amazing accuracy, combined with batch processing and comprehensive network features, make it the perfect choice for organizations of all kinds.
Maximize Productivity with the eDiscovery Assistant for Searchable PDF
PDF files are everywhere and can come from a variety of sources. They can include scanned pages, embedded images, and other types of information. Yet, many of these elements don't include searchable text. The new eDiscovery Assistant for searchable PDF is a revolution in safely converting a single PDF or batches of PDFs of all types into completely searchable documents. Now you don't have to open PDF files individually, or use an OCR process that may unintentionally wipe out valuable information.
Access and Convert Documents in the Cloud
Storing, sharing, and archiving documents using cloud storage services is a fast and convenient option today. OmniPage Professional is designed to easily connect to a variety of cloud storage and online document websites. Now you can access and convert documents stored in Windows Live SkyDrive, GoogleDocs, Evernote, Dropbox, and many other storage options. You can even open documents directly from one cloud service, convert them, and store them in a different cloud service--all in one convenient step.
With OmniPage Professional, you can:
- Take advantage of superior word accuracy to re-create documents quickly

- Make documents completely searchable while preserving existing text

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Tech support responded after a day or two then, after spending a fair amount of time editing an ini file somewhere so that I could enable error logging, followed by sending the requested files in, hey never responded back. after a little over a week later I got my refund for the software and gave up on it.
Omnipage also trashed my Paperport 12.1 installation and I had to go back and reinstall that also. Now, when I start Paperport sometimes, it wants me to activate it again. I try the automatic activation and that doesn't work. Once the manual reactivation worked but now it doesn't.
I have Omnipage 15 standard and it works well for me, so that's what I'll continue using. Apparently, Omnipage 18 still has some serious bugs to work out in the scanner setup portion of their product.
Scanner Setup and Configuration: My Scanjet N6xx0 that worked properly under OmniPage 17 would no longer function using the same Windows 7 certified scanner driver; I was able to use an alternate driver to test out the software.
Speed and Accuracy: Based on about an hour of testing on my system, I found no accuracy or speed increases between version 17 and 18 using Fax, printed and photocopied materials. Overall, I could not identify any speed and accuracy benefits of version 18 over version 17 based on my home office needs.
Nuance Cloud Connector: Upon opening the Nuance Cloud Connector, I was immediately presented with an unprompted spamware pop-up offer to upgrade to the full version of Nuance Cloud Connector. Features and functionality of the included spamware version of the Nuance Cloud Connector are rudimentary at best and offer little benefits over user configured or open source/free software. The utility was easy to configure but failed to connect to my primary cloud service.
Software Activation: Given the economy and cost of software, on-the-fly license management and the ability to transfer needed software between my two desktop computers and laptop is essential (i.e., as opposed to buying multiple copies of software). Nuance has again failed to include industry-standard on-the-fly license activation and deactivation, and/or an on-line license management equivalent. During installation and removal, the software continues to rely on a silent activation/deactivation scheme with absolutely no user prompting.
Program Bugs and Technical Support: The software installed and activated properly; however, I was presented with the same activation menu each time I started the program. This long-standing cyclic activation bug is nothing new to Nuance products and it is regrettable that Nuance has not remedied this problem. After contacting technical support via the on-line support form regarding the cyclic activation bug, I received a scripted response that was nonsensical in the context of the question that I asked. After several attempts of explaining the problem to a telephone technical support rep, I was given the typical Nuance technical support instructions for removing and reinstalling the software, my activations were reset; I received no assurances that the problem will not happen again. I have requested a refund under the Nuance 30 day money back guarantee but I have not heard back from Nuance at the time of writing this review or two days.
Overall Thoughts and Recommendations: Given that my assessment of Omnipage 18 was based on my individual needs and preferences, and made in comparison to OmniPage 17, other users may find some value in upgrading to or purchasing version 18. In terms of my personal opinions, I am very disappointed that Nuance continues to fail to provide users with an industry-standard activation scheme, and has equally failed to address long-standing bugs with their antiquated activation system. Relative to the new Nuance Cloud Connector, which was the principal reason I chose to purchase version 18, I was extremely disappointed with the functionality of the applet and equally offended with the unsolicited upgrade pop-up offer (i.e., SPAM), appeared from within the program; I would have been fine with an e-mail offer following registration. Relative to technical support, Nuance continues to offer the absolute worst support that I have experienced in the software industry. Overall, there is nothing about this software that I would recommend, and based on my experience, OmniPage 18 is a marked downgrade in comparison to an unimpressive but functional version 17.
I could not locate a how-to that had any detailed content, nor a youtube video that someone else would have posted.
I posted the issue along with my sample one-page to the Support site, but got no reply. Although the Support site gave me a ticket number, there was no email sent acknowledging the issue.
In summary, a product that is poorly documented, poorly supported and high-priced.
I ended up using another vendor's product, though it still take three days of search-and-replace edits to convert the unreadable characters to the original text.
In short, it doesn't and it can't. The software just plain does not work. Unbelievable. What a rip off.
I wasted weeks with their poor product support attempting to make this program work. The software flow is strange
and poorly documented. It is difficult to even figure out how to do simple tasks.
Don't bother with their companion software, PDF Converter Professional, as that cannot make a searchable PDF from a schematic either. It gives up almost immediately and shows "Cannot convert document".
