Installed on 2008 iMac running Leopard, latest updates installed and the latest drivers for the HP Photosmart C6280. Never saw the scanner, could not make it work. Tech support for this product is pretty much non existent, had to rely solely on email tech support which is absolutely worthless when you are onsite. Will never purchase this product again. It must be nice to be able to sell a product that doesn't have to work and the user is stuck with it, unbelievable what the software industry gets away with. Could you imagine buying a car and finding out it doesn't start, has no wheels to move, and the salesman says sorry your stuck with it.

UPDATE: I WAS ABLE TO CONTACT READIRIS TECHNICAL SUPPORT AND WAS ABLE TO DOWNLOAD READIRIS PRO 12.0.6 - WHICH WORKS WITH MOUNTAIN LION...

(...although the installer application was blocked by OS X Gatekeeper - just control-click on the installer and choose "Open")

Original review from October 2012:

This product is clearly a port from another platform. When I can get it to work -- and I have been a Mac, Windows, and Linux application developer -- then it does a fantastic job of recognizing the text and creating PDF documents.

But the product does not work with OS X Mountain Lion.

The software installs with hard-coded file permissions (user ID 501) into the /Applications folder. If this user ID does not exist, then the product will not work: it crashes immediately upon launch with no diagnostic information or feedback. Reporting this as a bug (which should be very easy to fix) is not possible. I have not been able to get a response from the company addressing this specific issue.

In 2010, the company released an update, version 12.0.5 Updater. This improved things somewhat. Now instead of silently refusing to launch, the program displays a dialog which says "Administrator rights are required to run this software for the first time." The only option is to click a "Quit" button to dismiss the dialog. Doing so does nothing to resolve the issue. This is not a standard OS X dialog; a Mac user would not perform a common procedure in response to such a message.

The company added an item to this product's FAQ web page at [...] - as I write this, it is the last such FAQ item on the page. The instructions tell the user to modify the file permissions on the "/Library/Application Support" folder.

I have lost days writing them and trying to call to get an upgrade and they just never respond. Never!

They do not list an upgrade price. Nothing.

I used their email link. No response. Twice!

Who needs that? My time is too valuable!

Forget it.

I have a Mac OS 10.6.6 and installed ReadIris Pro 12. As others have mentioned the customer service is basically non-existant (phone messages-no pick up, email only). Thankfully I was able to download it and it worked with my Canon MX850 so I have to give it a good review. But you definitely purchase this at your own risk.

Avoid this company.

If you need help -- and you will, I promise, because the product is very iffy -- you will get batted around among clueless and unresponsive I.R.I.S. employees, until you finally give up. I regret dealing with these people.

If you want a much better (a.k.a. functioning) product and much better (a.k.a. existent) customer service consider ABBYY FineReader Express. I've been very happy with it.

I have used earlier versions of this program and just upgraded to Pro 14 for Mac. This is fantastic software, always works great with all the HP printers I have ever had! It came with a printer years ago and I played around with it. Then my boss looked sad when he had a 30 page document that he had long ago lost the file to and wanted to update it. I did not have time to retype 30 pages so I brought the document home, scanned it through ReadIris, made some minor corrections and formatting, and handed him the newly saved file the next morning! He was able to make his changes on his computer and we printed out all the copies he needed. I did not tell him I had not retyped the 30 pages - lol! This program works! For those having problems, there are demos on the Internet on how to use the program.

I bought a new scanner, only to find out I'd also have to buy a "pro" copy of the OCR software because the disc that came with the scanner only allowed 40 scans.
I took back the new scanner, bought ReadIrisPro, and it worked perfectly with my Macbook Air and my 10-year-old Epson scanner.

Installed on my MacBook Pro running the latest updates installed and the latest drivers for the HP Photosmart Premium C309. Scanner worked fine, but could not retrieve after it saved the file - continuous error - "could not be opened". Tech support for this product is pretty much non existent, had to rely solely on email tech support which is absolutely worthless when you are onsite. This is my second try with Pro 14, as I had also purchased the Pro 12 earlier but with the same trouble. Will never purchase this product again after giving them two shots at it. It must be nice to be able to sell a product that doesn't have to work and the user is stuck with it, unbelievable what the software industry gets away with.
