Capture Two Types of Screenshots – Image and Text
Traditional screenshot capture programs take a picture of a program window or selected area of a user’s computer desktop. With ABBYY Screenshot Reader you can decide whether to take the traditional ‘Image Screenshots’ of your desktop application, Web site, presentation, or area of a document, or you can turn the text in graphics files into editable text and create ‘Text Screenshots’.
Easily create screenshots and save them as images, that you can share with your friends or use in presentations, training materials and various other documents. You can capture only selected area on the screen, a complete window (print screen) or your entire desktop. Advanced function Timed Screen will even let you take a screenshot with 5 seconds delay so you have the possibility to ‘prepare’ the screen – for example open up according menus if making documentation for a software.
If you want to grab some text from an image file, Web site, presentation, or PDF you can quickly turn text areas into truly editable text that you can paste directly into an open application, edit or save as Microsoft® Word or Excel® documents. Screenshot Reader will convert the image of the screenshot into text.
Easy to Use with Practical Tools
Taking screenshots is an easy task with our set of practical tools. The program’s main screen allows to choose an area for the screenshot and an output format. Screenshot reader can be set up to launch automatically at each start up and will be always by your hand.
Variety of saving formats
Screenshots can be used for different tasks and you might need them in different saving formats. ABBYY Screenshot Reader lets you save Image Screenshots in JPEG, Bitmap or PNG formats. Text Screenshot can be saved as editable texts in .RTF, .TXT, .DOC or .XLS formats.

Reviews for ABBYY Screenshot Reader
picture too text feature makes my work easier
Thank you ABBYY. This is a great screen reader with OCR. You select a area on the screen which contains text (even if it is on an image) and it translates it into text and places it on your clipboard. So far It has worked great for me. I use it to capture small amounts of text such as error messages.
I bought Abbyy Finereader 11 quite some time ago & it had a version of Abbyy Screenshot Reader with it so I have used it for quite some time. I haven’t used it a huge amount but each time that I have used it it has worked well. You will need to proof read afterwards though.
I have often used to to capture hobby related material information from old magazines & books that are out of copyright. or to get material from instruction manuals or brochures to make my own short form instruction sheets.
good product, i like it
ABBY Screenshot Reader is an efficient piece of software that helps you take and edit screenshots within any application on your PC. It uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to identify text in images or documents and creates an editable file from them. Therefore, you can edit the files or copy the text for use anywhere you want.
Once installed, ABBY Screenshot Reader will allow you take a photo of an area you have defined yourself. This can be a whole screen or just a small section of the active window. Taking a screenshot is very easy. In fact, the software offers numerous ways to achieve this; you can either take a screenshot immediately, take and edit a screenshot before saving, or set a timer (referred to as a Timed Screen) that will fire a screenshot after 5 seconds.
ABBY Screenshot Reader can capture screenshots of different sizes and export them to an e-mail message, save them to your computer, or save to the clipboard. It uses the Windows OS clipboard function to hold temporary data during copying.
This application supports over one hundred and fifty languages, which enables it also to perform well even when you are dealing with other languages. In all these languages, it allows you to edit the screenshots conveniently.
Once you create a screenshot, you can export its contents to e-mails, XLS files, DOC files, RTF, .PNG, or .JPG. This makes it indeed handy in creating documents, adding facts to texts, incorporating infographics to reports, creating brochures, designing email templates, and creating lists in spreadsheets.
The software’s ability to save screenshots in various formats is very helpful. You can incorporate different kinds of information or pictures without having to do much editing. Besides, you can edit documents to correct errors just before you incorporate them in your research. Additionally, the software is easy to use and saves you the need to use scanning software.
ABBY Screenshot Reader worked well when I used it to copy and edit short documents (containing a maximum of three paragraphs). However, when I shifted to larger documents, it was evident that the files needed some proofreading before I could save or copy them to other documents. This problem is common in OCR software.
Getting ABBY Screenshot Reader for free is a great deal as it performs well. It has support for over 150 languages and provides an option to edit in any of these languages. You can schedule a screenshot or take it immediately depending on your preferences. It is a good software that will increase your productivity by saving you a lot of time that you could have used in editing the documents.

Typically a form that needs to be filled out is in PDF format. Since the title of this software says its a reader and not a writer, are you saying that ABBYY Screenshot Reader will allow me to complete the fields in a PDF file?
Also, not that I’m lacking in disk space, but it would be nice if we could pick and choose options (who needs 160 languages?!?) to reduce the 240 MB size.
Thanks, SWoS, for the offering!
I can’t tell how good it is – all I can say is I didn’t get the email with the licence key. I provided two of my email addresses – and no email from the makers of this piece of software. It’s a shame, of course. I’ll have to pass it …
