Recognizes online fast enough. True, I was put in line, but I was in the queue first.

I checked for errors. A small piece of text of excellent quality (made a screenshot from their own site, where much better?) Produced 2 errors in each word.

It works much better with scans.

Service will bring to mind. You can expect a good result. In Ukraine there have always been good programmers.
