Free OCR Software

Well, sort of free. I was looking to convert a graphic, scanned text document into a Word document. Come to find out, Microsoft includes an optical Character Recognition (OCR) feature within Microsoft Office. So for any of you with a copy of Office (and come on, who can’t get a copy to use rather easily?) follow this guys instructions:

 I followed them and it worked much better than I thought it would – at least 98% correct.

    Hey,

    I just happen to come across your post. There is a service that can help you do OCR online for free. Have a look at http://www.ocrterminal.com.

    Cheers!
