Important notice about Document Capture OCR

Upon processing documents in Continia Document Capture, you either use the Continia cloud OCR service or have installed the ABBYY FineReader Engine and Document Capture Service on-premises.

With the on-premises OCR version, Document Capture uses the OCR functionality of ABBYY FineReader to enrich received paper- and PDF documents with data, which is used to register documents in Microsoft Dynamics NAV and 365 Business Central.

ABBYY FineReader is an optical character recognition (OCR) system that converts scanned documents, PDF documents, and image files, including digital photos, into editable formats.

On 1. September 2021, the ABBYY FineReaderEngine version 10 is no longer supported by the producer ABBYY. This is because the technology in version 10 is getting old and is no longer developed.


I have the ABBYY FineReaderEngine version 10 installed; what should I do?

As mentioned, after 1 September 2021, receiving technical support for this version of the ABBYY FineReader will no longer be possible. You can still process documents in your Document Capture solution; however, from this date, you can no longer purchase more OCR pages to be processed for your license or add additional languages if the need arises.

For this reason, we encourage you to update your ABBYY FineReaderEngine to version 12.

If you wish to upgrade, you can contact your Dynamics Partner to learn about your options for upgrading to the latest version.
