How to improve ABBY FineReader OCR results?

Post by TuomoKoo » 27 Sep 2018 06:21

I am using ABBYY Fine Reader 14 to recognize German and Russian military text from downloaded war diaries. The diaries are typewriter text, and the quality of documents varies a lot. In order to improve OCR results, I would like to use custom vocabularies (word lists) of those languages within FineReader.
Questions:
1) Can anybody help me how to import and use custom vocabulary in FineReader application?
2) Is there anywhere available ready made German and Russian military word lists for OCR?
