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.
