.ud File Extension

Developer: Nuance Communications
File type: OmniPage User Dictionary File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ud. Files with the file extension .ud can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ud files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ud file?

An OmniPage user dictionary file is a supplemental data file proprietary to Nuance Communications, a prominent software development company of accessible applications. The supplemental utility of an OmniPage user dictionary file is its function of adding lists of proper nouns and abbreviations and technical terminologies entered by the user of a program called OmniPage, and these OmniPage user dictionary files aid the main dictionary files implemented into the OmniPage software. The OmniPage program was developed by Nuance Communications to provide users with a set of functionalities used for OCR (Optical Character Recognition) projects, and this application may have multiple main dicitionary files since support for many languages is integrated into this program. These OmniPage user dictionary files and main dictionaries are used for the optical character recognition processes deployed by the OmniPage application. A OmniPage user dictionary file may be associated with one particular main dictionary. The content of an OmniPage user dictionary file is integrated with data encoding specifications proprietary to Nuance Communications and the UD file format. These OmniPage user dictionary files are appended with the .ud extension.

how to open a .ud file?

Launch a .ud file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ud file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ud files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ud file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ud file will open the correct application.

Nuance OmniPage 18

Nuance OmniPage 18

The Omnipage 18, developed by Nuance Communications, Inc. is imaging software that allows users to convert file formats like PDF, camera images, images from mobile devices as well as images from e-book readers into documents that can be edited. This software saves users’ time retyping documents from another file format since they can just convert them. The features contained in this application are innovative, speedy and more accurate. Nuance Omnipage 18 features an automatic language detection that allows the program to assign a single OCR language once this auto language detection feature is enabled. The software also supports multiple languages as well as it supports various applications like Corel WordPerfect, MS Office Suite, etc. Converting file formats into documents with the use of Omnipage 18 is a very simple but interesting process because the files that users convert into documents will look exactly the same as the original file; only that all the file contents were converted into documents.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ud files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ud. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
