[access-uk] Re: KURZWEIL 1000 UPGRADE?

Carol,

Kurzweil is now much more accurate than version 8.  I have version ten and
find I get far better scans than with version nine.  After scanning a book I
often have a result of %99.8 accuracy which is far better than I used to
get.  Another advantage of upgrading with Kw is that you do not have to pay
for the upgrades you missed.  Therefore, if you go from 8 to 11, which is
the current version, you do not pay for 9 and 10 which you missed.  If only
Jaws had the same upgrade policy.

Having purchased Kurzweil some time back, I'm not going to go out and get
anything else - just will possibly upgrade that which I know ...

If I had nothing then now I'd probably go for Abby Finereader

Cheers.

Hi Jackie and Carol,
Some time ago I switched from OpenBook and now use Abby FineReader.  It's
about £70 (about half the cost of an Openbook upgrade) and I'm wondering
what the bespoke blindness products offer that I don't get with Abby?

From my perspective, I think that following my switch, I got better
recognition, and better access to PDF files.  I lost text to speech (which I
never used) but can't think of anything else off hand.

I'd be very interested to know why people still seem to prefer the other
products.
