First reply from ABBYY:

If video card is installed and configured correctly it should be accessed correctly by ABBYY FineReader 12. Nonetheless it will only influence on graphical part (rendering images and program interface) and will not improve the speed of text recognition.
I replied:

Would the program operate faster with a separate GPU for the graphical part of the processing, all else being equal?

They already answered your question: no. It doesn't matter if it is discrete or integrated.

It never meant that. You're thinking of SaaS.

SOS is an acronym for "Save Our Ship/Souls". The morse code signal ...---... means "We're in trouble."

And FineReader says their program doesn't access the GPU.

Opanapointer - thanks 4 d pic.
It was an nVIDIA and it was apparently a really bad card because a lot of people had the same issue and there was no apparent fix for it. GTX 675m was the type of card. If you type GTX 675m blue screen you'll get a good amount of sites asking for help with no solution. I am definitely happy with my desktop computer with a GTX 1080.

The origins of SOS and Mayday | OxfordWords blog

S.O.S became the worldwide standard distress signal (particularly in maritime use) on 1 July 1908, having first been adopted by the German government three years earlier. It has since entered the awareness of those who are unlikely ever to summon help at sea – appearing in contexts as varied as the title of songs by ABBA, Rihanna, and the Jonas Brothers, and the home renovation TV programme DIY SOS.

The origin of S.O.S.

Various theories have arisen regarding the origins of S.O.S., with suggestions that it is an initialism for save our ship, save our souls, or send out succour. Given its German origins, it would be surprising if S.O.S. stood for an English expression – and in fact these are all examples of folk etymology. S.O.S. doesn’t stand for anything but was chosen because it is easily transmitted in Morse (also known as Morse code), an alphabet named after its inventor Samuel Morse in which letters are represented by combinations of long and short light or sound signals. S.O.S. is transmitted as · · · – – – · · ·; that is, dot-dot-dot, dash-dash-dash, dot-dot-dot.

Within a decade of its standardization, the term S.O.S. was used outside of radio code signals, in the transferred sense of ‘an urgent message or appeal for help’, and has also been used as an abbreviation for various informal phrases beginning same old (same old stuff, same old story, etc.
