PaperPort 11 is a new scanning application for Microsoft Windows which claims to simplify the scanning process by allowing one-touch scanning to turn your piles of paper and photos into organised PDF and JPEG files.
The latest PaperPort promises one-button scanning and a navigation speed improvement (from previous versions) of 200 percent. There is also a new search agent named PaperPort Watson, which claims to understand what the user is working on and collects relevant information from the Web and displays it in a sidebar. It can also index and extract text from documents in 56 languages.
PDF capabilities are based on file compression technology called PDF-MRC, which the company claims creates industry standard PDFs that are up to eight times smaller than what alternative products offer. Other features include point-and-click image correction tools.
“With PaperPort 11 we’ve focused on what people love about the product – taking the pain out of scanning and making it easy to organise all their files on a PC,” said PaperPort’s Derek Austin.
RRP: PaperPort 11 – $199 and ScanSoft PaperPort Profesional 11 – $399
