Anyone know of any OCR software that -actually- works? I've tried gocr

One more quick question, does anyone know what the file .kturnedon
refers to. Mine only has contents false.

Thanks,

I really like PaperPort. Windows program. Same vendor (after mergers) as Omnipage, so I think the OCR engine is the same. I really like the way the program works, is layed out, functions. I'm still on vesion 9, 10 is out now. Does ocr pretty well, much much better that the first version I purchased, about 6 or so. Very smart from a document management/filing/storage point of view. I'm not sure of the difference between Omnipage and Paperport though they came from different companies originally. Paperport does export to pdf format, which is pretty cool for a $99 windows code chunck. Company was called ScanSoft, now called Nuance, www.nuance.com.

I was thinking of adding PaperPort to the Novell list of required/requested linux must have programs.

No idea if it works with wine.

Jim
