ABBYY FineReader 11 Professional Edition
Quickly convert scanned images into editable, searchable documents

ABBYY FineReader 11 Professional is a powerful OCR application that will quickly extract the text from almost any image.

The program can import images directly from any TWAIN or WIA-compatible scanner. And if that's not convenient, it can also import PDF files and graphics in most common formats, so for example you could in theory take a photo of a document and work from the image.

FineReader then uses ABBYY's Adaptive Document Recognition Technology to identify and analyse various elements of your document: tables of contents, headers, footers, page numbers, footnotes and more.

And so if you save the scanned document to a Microsoft Word DOCX file, say, you don't only get the text - it's also formatted correctly (so headers and footers in the image become Word headers and footers in the finished file).

Support for 186 recognition languages (including 39 with dictionary support) helps to ensure a high level of accuracy. And when the process is over, you're able to save the final document in a variety of formats, including Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX), Excel (XLS, XSLX), PowerPoint (PPTX), RTF, PDF, HTML and more.

The brand new FineReader 11 is 25% faster than the previous version, ships with a new black & white processing mode and an enhanced processing mode which will recognise text up to 70% faster.

Please note, the trial version of the program will expire after 15 days, or when it's scanned 50 pages, whichever comes first. Additionally, it only allows you to save one page at a time. All these restrictions are of course removed if you purchase a licence.

Verdict:

An accurate OCR tool that comes packed with professional features

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview

    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
