I made an inventory count in my workshop. I have around A4 50 pages with digits (numbers) well tabulated and relatively clearly written.

Is there any way that I could convert those numbers into excel files? I am using FineReader 12 but does not recognize them.

Please help!

Unfortunately, at the moment ABBYY FineReader 12 does not support recognition of handwritten text.

However if you have some programming skills, you can try our SDK solutions, for example – ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK. It allows to recognize a handwritten text, but only if the characters are written separately, so called "handprinted text". To recognize the handprinted text you need to set textType=handprinted for the text that is being recognized as handprinted.
