Readiris Pro 15 - No retyping. No paper. Just smart documents

Readiris 15 is an OCR application that converts your scans, images, pictures and PDF files to fully editable smart documents (Word, Excel, PDF, among many other formats).

With the 15th version of its flagship OCR software, IRIS raised the bar even higher. With over 10 pioneering new features, Readiris 15 is a reference when it comes to document conversion and PDF edition.

In today’s digital era, paper documents as well as tedious retyping sessions are becoming history. Readiris 15 is THE tool that helps you effortlessly create, edit and manage smart digital files to boost your productivity.

Convert & Edit:

Use OCR software to save the precious time you would lose retyping information from documents. Readiris 15 automatically recognizes the text and layout from an image, a PDF or a scanned document and turns it into an editable digital file (Word, Excel, PDF, HTML, TXT, ePub, etc.)

Your PDF Toolbox:

Readiris 15 features a large set of PDF editing tools to help you accomplish everyday tasks. Within PDF files, it allows you to create, add, merge, delete, edit, rotate, compress, sign or straighten pages. It will also let you convert PDF files to editable Word, Excel or even searchable PDF documents in order to help you edit and manage information.

Back-up, work and collaborate in the Cloud:

Easily export all your processed documents into your favorite Cloud hosting service in order to keep track of all your files no matter where you are! Readiris 15 features a large set of Cloud connectors that will let you export your documents to the Cloud during the conversion process.

Compatible with any scanner:

Readiris 15 features a built-in scanning module, compatible with almost any document or photo scanner. No matter if you are using an 'all-in-one' printer and scanner, an old-school flatbed scanner or even a powerful professional 'MFP' scanner, Readiris 15 will always find its way to your paper documents.

"ReadIris 14 is not capable of doing OCR on Arabic texts."

It works ok in European languages.

BUt I bought it for Arabic languages and that is not functional. I do not understand, how Softonic's review can evaluate even the Arabic capabilities. It does not work.

Softonic's add shows:

readiris pro 12 readiris pro 8 arabic readiris pro 11 ocr readiris pro 11 arabic iris readiris pro 14 readiris pro 14 ocr readiris 14 readiris pro 10 readiris pro 11 download free Readiris Pro 14 free download Readiris Pro 14 Readiris Pro 14 free download Readiris Pro 14 14

Not one model works or do you count the translation of single Characters as OCR capability? If you take out only one space separating all characters, you have only one long Arabic word. IT IS NOT READABLE.

The firm does not react to my complaints, which adds the fact that this is fraud on purpose. If needed, I can send you my correspondence with the firm.

I am disappointed, thet Softonic evaluators did not discover this.

If they cannot speak Arabic, copy the text, put it into Google translate and you discover the software is not capable to read the text. It puts exactly one blanc after each character and does not separate the words by an additional blanc.

you can reach me at reinhard.honert(at)

for a joint complaint!
