OCR: abbyy fine reader vs. presto page manager

  1. Jun 9, 2012 #1
    Hello,
    I need to reprint a book scanning a previous edition, could you tell me if I can prepare the PDF at home by myself on my laptop, spending little money, with an OCR software?
    Is there any difference between abbyy and presto?
    Epson Bx 305 F uses abbyy, whilst Sx 430 uses presto, do you think I can reach my goal with one of these cheap scanners?
    Thanks

    I don't know about Presto, but ABBYY Fine Reader doesn't work well with books with formulas, like maths or physics texts.
