ABBYY FineReader Touch is available for download at the Windows Store, and is one of the first OCR applications supporting the new operating system and its newly-designed interface for touch-sensing devices.
With the official release of Windows 8, ABBYY FineReader Touch is compatible with all devices running the new operating system from Microsoft.

Integrated with ABBYY FineReader Online, a cloud-based OCR service, the application supports text recognition in 42 languages including multilingual documents. With its ability to accurately re-create formatting attributes (e.g. headings, bulleted and numbered lists, columns, tables and images) and the layout of documents, it allows users to accurately process a variety of document types.
"Simplicity and user convenience were our main focus when developing this application. As a result, the product is endowed with all advantages of a cloud service. It doesn't take many of computer resources since all major processing takes place on Microsoft Windows Azure®," said Sergey Popov, director of FineReader Products Department at ABBYY.
"We believe that users of Windows devices all over the world will benefit from the new cloud-based OCR application developed by our strategic partner," commented Mikhail Chernomordikov, Evangelism Unit Lead at Microsoft Russia.

The Windows Azure platform provides easy access to documents and fast and powerful processing capabilities."
ABBYY FineReader Touch can be downloaded from the Windows Store and installed free of charge. The application offers a "pay as you go" pricing scheme allowing users to save money paying only for the actual number of pages processed. Each registered user receives a bonus of 20 pages for free conversion.
