INFO: OmniPageEngine - Overview

OmniPageEngine is new in 11.3 and is meant to be a replacement for AbbyyEngine (which is removed in 11.3 and forward)

Customers with existing OCR licenses for AbbyyEngine will have the needed OmniPage licensing added to their existing serials. Sales should be sending you information on the updated licensing via email. If you have questions or encounter issues, please feel free to create a support case.
