    OCR Software - Which One?

    Hello All,

    A user requires an OCR Package for her scanning. Does anybody know of any top dollar superduper fantastic packages that will work spot on? I don't want any cheapo packages to cause the user grief - it needs to be long term and needs to work well.

    Anybody any clues as to which one?

    Oliver.

    Oliver,

    The depends on what the end-users' requirements are.

    We use: Adobe Acrobat Pro. That way the end-user can scan a document, run it through OCR and then make and changes to the document they deem necessary and then save it in any number of different formats.

    I've used Omnipage in the past, that worked reasonably well. You could save doc, PDF etc files.

    It probably won't be an option, but Google Docs can also do OCR.
