The documentation on their website seems to be quite detailed.

No. But you have porbably a rights problem. Quote of a faq question:
"Do I need root-rights for the CLI OCR?
   * ABBYY CLI OCR for Linux 9 can be used with unprivileged user rights.
   * Only for activation of the license file “root” is needed.
   Important: If “normal” users can not use the CLI, please check the user 
   rights and test chmod 755
I had to change the root rights of /var/lib/frengine9 to user's as 
metntioned above.

You mean without an image file as input? I don't think, that this is
intended, but I'm not really sure of that.
