Announcement: ABBYY USA and Kirtas Technologies Form Strategic Licensing Partnership

Two companies that have appeared together in print (thinking of articles that appeared in USA Today and elsewhere quoting the two CEOs), now have formed a partnership. The press release states that "Kirtas will incorporate ABBYY's optical character recognition (OCR) technology through ABBYY FineReader Engine into its APT BookScan 1200™ system and its BookScan Editor software." The Kirtas literature alluded to the fact their images where clean enough for OCR. Now one will not need a seperate piece of software to have text OCR'd.

The Kirtas OCR functionality is an added cost option, I believe it is approximately $4,000 dollars which gets you a dongle that will permit you to recognise up to 100,000 pages per month. Given the page limitation, it would normally be cheaper to purchase (multiple) retail Abbyy Professional licenses, which do not have page per month limits, and cost around $300.
