Been using Paperport for several years. It was always innovative - now it is finally stable
PP has its own OCR engine which is necessary for its capability of providing full-text searches of any document. I rarely scan docs with PP. I use it extensively as a virtual printer for web pages. Just "print" to PP to generate a PDF or PP-format (called a .max file) for reading on your screen, printing in the future, and searching using full-text (and fuzzy) searches. Perfect for archiving news stories. It's one of the few programs that I can't live without.
PP also can link to other programs for output. This includes e-mail and other OCR programs. Check out www.scansoft.com
