The ABBYY FineReader software for Mac OS X is not supplied on the product's software CD for the models listed in the Relates To section of this article. You can install ABBYY FineReader using the EPSON Download Navigator software which should have been installed by the software CD or can be downloaded from the Drivers and Software section of the Epson support website for your product.
Note for OS X Mavericks users:
ABBYY FineReader Sprint 8.0 is currently not supported on Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9). Refer to the ABBYY website for further information.
Do the following:
Go to your Applications folder and open the Epson Software folder.
Double-click on Download Navigator.
On the "Download Navigator checks for new software." window, click Yes.
Download Navigator now connects to the server and searches for available bundled software or software updates.
If the Download Navigator program does not progress to this stage, ensure your Epson product is powered on and connected to your Mac via a USB cable. If you are using your product on a network connection, you can temporarily use a USB connection to complete the update and then return to the usual connection type for your product.
ABBYY FineReader should appear in the Download Navigator screen, tick the box next to the software and click Install.
Download Navigator now downloads ABBYY FineReader.
Once the download is complete, the ABBYY FineReader wizard appears. Click Continue and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
Once ABBYY FineReader is installed click Quit to finish the application or click Continue if you want to install other software or software updates.
