[prMac.com] Mons, Belgium - Creaceed is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Prizmo 2, a revolutionary scanning and OCR app for the Mac. Prizmo 2 is a complete rewrite, with many new features such as multipage document handling, business card processing, and support for more than 40 languages. It's making use of the latest Mountain Lion features and has been optimized for Retina display.
Prizmo offers a streamlined approach to document processing : scan with a scanner, camera, or even connected iPhone, recognize the text, edit, export. With Prizmo, you can skip any of these steps and go straight to results, or instead dive into advanced editing if document requires it (lens distortion/page curvature removal, illumination correction, resolution increase, multiple languages, edit OCR regions on page, etc.). Business cards can be sent directly to Contacts.app. Export options include PDF with searchable text, and allow sending to various cloud services.
What's New in Prizmo 2:
* Specific processing for text documents, business cards and images
* Support for multipage documents
* Snap Screen Text: text recognition for screenshots through an automatic resolution increase. OCR can be performed on texts that appear on the screen, even if they are not user-selectable
* Over 30 new OCR languages
* Automatic page frame detection for camera-made pictures
* In-app text editing and correction: fine-tune results before final export if you need it
* Live OCR: see the text improve in real time as you edit image quality and reposition text regions.
* Recognized texts can be read out loud using text-to-speech technology
* Translation of recognized texts into 23 languages
* Export as regular PDF, image PDF with searchable text, RTF, TXT, as well as other image formats. Support for Evernote, Box.net, Google Drive, and WebDAV
* Pro Pack: batch processing many documents, Automator Action for user-made automated processing, and custom scripts
* iCloud support with the Mac App Store version: documents can be saved to your iCloud to access them and continue work on another Mac. (sharing with Prizmo on iOS will be available at a later time)
* And many other features that are listed on our website
English, French, German
* Requires Mac OS X 10.7.4 or later
* 28.0 MB
