I bet it does not. A Russian guy was asking the same thing in another thread. Wait for an official response but I think  that may be the answer. On the bright side, languages other than the current English and German CAN be added but I have no Idea of how that would affect the program as a whole

We currently only support German and English. Other Western-type languages should be somewhat functional.

I asked around and we're not very clear about what languages we support for OCR in our marketing materials, so now the wheels are in motion to make that more clear.

We could support more languages if there is enough requests/feedback.

Thanks for your question, and I'm sorry I didn't have the answer you were looking for.

Is this a case of adding more dictionaries? I believe you are licensing from ABBY so do they have them and if so could they be somewhat easily implemented?

Licensing is a part of it, but there's more that we'd have to consider. Somethings that come to mind are: delivery (adding a language isn't big...adding a hundred is), and testing and tweaking settings for languages we have no ability to read/understand internally I'm sure there are others I'm not thinking of at the moment.

So...there's some insight into how the sausage is made :)

I'm sorry Amir, but grab text does not support Hebrew at this time.

There have been similar questions and I believe the answer is no. Techsmith or someone more knowledgeable may have a solution for you.
