ABBYY pushes Arabic OCR solutions

Software solutions vendor ABBYY Group, participated at GITEX Technology Week and used the exhibition to reveal how it helped Yarmouk University in Jordan to digitise learning materials for blind or visually impaired students.

ABBYY said it hopes that the story of this implementation will resonate with both government and private organisations post-GITEX with the company expecting to build a solid business pipeline for its offerings.

The company stated that it held a series of meetings with existing and potential independent software vendors (ISVs), independent hardware vendors (IHVs) and SI partners to discuss the plans and explore new opportunities for cooperation in the Middle East.

“Our solutions allow computer to read text from images and understand its meaning. This can be used for conversion of scans, photos, PDFs and any other kind of images into editable and searchable files,” said Igor Shkamratov, business development director for the Middle East and Africa at ABBYY. “We have always viewed GITEX as an opportunity to tell both government and private organisations about the opportunities that our technologies provide to improve the quality of life; to create an unlimited environment for people with disabilities to get and use information,” added Shkamratov.

He outlined that ABBYY has more ideas to share with government and private organisations regarding what they can do for their citizens on a nationwide scale.
