Second-class citizens ‘R’ Us.

The program doesn’t capture anything at all from my modern, commodity HP printer/scanner; it correctly demonstrates the preview image, but then doesn’t produce any page. So, let’s go to tech support for some startup help… No possibility of getting near any human of course. The “knowledge base” search function doesn’t return any hits for “scanner” and “mac.” Further, after having chosen the FineReader product, the website never allows the choice of version or platform by using their popup lists — all remaining input fields turn to endlessly turning progress wheels. In order to register the program on the Abbyye web site, you have to painstakingly copy the 24-character serial number, because it is only available in the program’s “About” box as a screen display string — it’s not selectable there or anywhere else in the program. The registration succeeds. Then I try to use the same serial number to open a trouble ticket, but that serial number is rejected as invalid, and there’s no way to open a ticket without a valid serial number. The PC vs. Mac feature comparison on the website compares against FineReader PC version 12; the current version on that platform is 14, so one really doesn’t have any idea as to how the two products compare. The startup video for the Mac product which is posted in the official Abbyye channel on YouTube is trivial, and is years out of date; nothing more recent has been posted. These frustrations have all been within the first two hours of attempted use. The only operation which has operated flawlessly so far has been the charge to my credit card.
