Hey guys, here’s the deal:
My Mum’s job requires her to get pages of text (e.g. pages from textbooks) and retype them into a bigger font for the Kids that she works with that have bad eye sight. My Q is, is there a piece of software out there that can scan in a page of text then convert the image in to a txt/rtf? This would help my Mum sooo much :p.
This type of software is usually bundled with the scanner software/suite.
If you are looking for something and there was nothing bundled, try freeware.com and also browse cnet for reviews on the software. BTW, no OCR is currently perfect, but it does do 90% - 95% of a good job nowadays, but there will usually need to be some sort of manual fixing up as well.
