We’ve got a review of OmniPage coming soon. For now though, we are still working our way through our free trial.
We wanted to let you know that the free trial of OmniPage Pro’s latest version is going well. We’re super pleased with the high level of character recognition and how it’s possible to convert to Microsoft Office formats with just one click.
Throughout all versions, we’ve been able to do a lot with the OCR and scanning options built into OmniPage Pro, and the latest version is no exception.
We’ve (almost) always been impressed with how you can take documents and turn them into text to readily. This is the kind of work that we used to do for clients, that would take literally hundreds of hours, typing and re-typing from text and even from handwritten documents.
One of people’s biggest complaints about Nuance/Scansoft has been the lack of support on products including OmniPage, but with our free trial we got free support. And, it appears from reading reviews online that many of the support issues have been fixed and that in many cases, you’ll actually be able to get ongoing free support as a customer of OmniPage Pro.
Again, we’ve got a review of MoniPage coming shortly, but use the link below if you’d like your free trial (plus coupon).
———————- OmniPage Free Trial and Coupons
If you are going to get the free trial of OmniPage Pro
use this Coupon to download and get 5% off OmniPage when/if you buy.
There are free coupons available to download Omnipage. We’ve just done a trial download of MoniPage and are quite impressed ourselves. Using the trial download, we’ve played with the program and found it to be an excellent solution for the OCR work we’ve been trying to do.
Having used OmniPage for a number of years, I have found that they had some hiccups with the challenges surround merging ScanSoft with Nuance. However, once that was done, I’ve been impressed with Omnipage. It is a program I’m happy to have downloaded at first and will continue to download because it does actually improve every time they launch a new edition of the software.
OmniPage has really great accuracy when doing OCR. This means that I save a lot of time because all of my documents become digital documents quickly and effectively. I like some of the automated features of Omnipage and how simple it is to use.
Anyway, I’ll have more of a review of OmniPage later, as today’s post is really just supposed to be about the OmniPage coupons available, but I hope you’ll at least give the free trial download a shot, and if you like it, use the coupon to save 5% or more. I’ve found Omnipage to be a great product.
Want a free scan of your computer from Panda (same company that is the award winning software maker of Panda Antivirus)?
Their free scan will look over your computer and tell you what threats you’re currently exposed to. Then, chances are good, once Panda has scanned your computer using their free scan, they will try to get you to buy Panda Antivirus as a way to fix your computer.
It’s a good business model to offer something for free to entice you into downloading something else.
However, unlike with more dubious software makers, Panda Antivirus is actually a product that will do what it says it will do after running the free scan of your computer.
Panda has something that they call “Collective Intelligence Technology”. This is the idea of cloud computing, and allows the millions of people (who use Panda software to scan their computers) to get nearly instant information from one another. This automatically improves protection nearly as fast as viruses are released. It gives users a freedom, and a peace of mind, knowing that all computers connected through Panda’s software are having their computers updated with the latest intelligence about threats, coming in from all over the world.
By leveraging community knowledge, Panda’s software offers a really great protection against spyware, with a minimal impact on your computer, leading to faster and more versatile products. If you want to see what Panda can do, try their free your computer of spyware scan to see what it finds on your computer.
Though you may not have heard of them, Trend Micro is one of the world’s largest companies in the antispyware and computer protection software space.
In this interview, I spoke with David Perry, director of Global Education for Trend Micro, about solutions for everyone from home and home offices, to small business and enterprise business solutions.
Products we talked about Trend Micro Internet Security (formerly called PC-Cillin, but since phased out for a new name, just Internet Security), as well as their antivirus plus antispyware solutions, and a free scan that they call “Housecall”.
This is one of my favorite interviews I’ve done for IdentityTheftSecrets.com, as David is both a dynamic speaker and a very knowledgeable individual in the security and computer protection industry.
You can listen to the interview here for now, and a transcript of this interview with Trend Micro will be coming soon.

Kapersky germinated in 1989, when Russian computer technician Eugene Kaspersky found the Cascade virus on his PC. He developed his own anti-virus program and purged the little monster, and released his program to the public in 1993.
Since then, Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab has developed into a multi-national company with offices in Europe, Asia, and North America, and with Eugene Kaspersky still in R&D. Although the company’s software is currently better known in Eastern Europe and Asia, it’s growing in popularity elsewhere, particularly after Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 won the PC World Editor’s Choice award for Antivirus programs in 2007.
Kaspersky Lab offers three consumer products: Anti-Virus 7, Internet Security 7, and new Mobile Security.
Kapersky Antivirus (pricey at $59.95 per year) detects all the usual suspects, including Trojans, viruses, and worms, and it also scans for spyware, adware, and keyloggers at the same time. The program gives strong and prompt detection, with the malware database automatically updating every hour and the signatures of new virus and spam attacks added to the database within one to two hours of the outbreak’s first report.
