STRing: Free OCR for RISC OSBy Chris Williams. Published: 16th Oct 10:21:34 | Permalink | Printable
If you use a scanner, you'll know that a scanned image of a magazine page can't be editted in a word processor. The graphical image needs to be converted back into letters that your word processor can handle. An OCR application converts pictures of letters into real letters.
While there are a few good OCR packages around, Mark Beerling has developed a free OCR application. STRing takes scanned text images from books, newspapers or magazines and converts them into text that can be edited in a word processor.
