ABBYY Europe, a provider of document recognition technologies, launched its ABBYY FineReader Engine 8.0 CLI for Linux, a command line interface utility for integration of ABBYY’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and PDF conversion technologies within Linux environments.

The new utility will enable fast access to the automated text recognition and conversion process on Linux environments while offering high quality conversion of scans, PDFs and images into editable and searchable formats. The utility delivers the output in various formats including RTF, HTML or PDF. The solution accurately reproduces text and also maintains the layout and formatting of the documents.

The command line interface for ABBYY FineReader Engine 8.0 CLI for Linux will allow the developers to use and integrate the OCR functionalities into a variety of desktop-based and server-based solutions.
