Notes

FreeOCR requires the .Net Framework V2.0 to be installed for XP users. To enable scanning of images you will need a desktop document scanner that uses Twain or WIA compatible scanning drivers.

Pros
  • Convert scanned-in text to editable text
  • Quick and easy to use
Cons
  • Limited scanner compatibility
  • Doesn't always convert perfectly

Softi FreeOCR is a complete scan and OCR program including the Windows compiled Tesseract free ocr engine V2.00. It includes a Windows installer and is very simple to use.

It supports multi-page tiff's, fax documents as well as most image types including compressed Tiff's which the Tesseract engine on its own cannot read. It now has Twain scanning included and support for multi page Tiff documents. Best of all it is totally free!

"using free online ocr"

I find another <a href="http://www.online-code.net/ocr.html">free online ocr</a>, it's using tesseract ocr 3.02.
