Hi Ron,

We have just upgraded to ABBYY FineReader 10 this week and I have been
doing some testing with it. The user interface is largely unchanged.

Major improvements include: Faster operation, Additional Image
enhancements, (reduce motion blur, reduce ISO noise, and perspective
adjustment) Using the scroll-wheel to move between images, (no need to
ALT+Arrow Key any longer) and greatly improved style retention.

The retention of styles is perhaps the most important improvement in
terms of our DAISY production. However, the new version is not all
improvements. I have some concerns with the way the new ADART II layout
system is treating page numbers as header or footer text boxes. Another
strange problem is that the editor seems to ignore re-ordered areas in
formatted text mode now. (making it more difficult to move page numbers,
and retain styles at the same time.)

Overall I think that it's a good upgrade, but it's going to take me
some time to learn all of the quarks of the new version. I would
recommend spending a little bit of time with it before deploying it in a
production environment.

Just let me know if you have any specific questions,
