Free OCR (Image To Text) Free Download

FreeOCR is Optical Character Recognition Software for Windows and supports scanning from most Twain scanners and can also open most scanned PDF's and multi page Tiff images as well as popular image file formats. FreeOCR outputs plain text and can export directly to Microsoft Word format. 

So what are the 3 most important features in OCR Software? See the list below: 

Speed - You need to get a character per second, or a pages per minute rating on the software to make sure it can handle your job size.

Accuracy - OCR Software does you no good if the output is horrible. Most engines today are in the 95% accuracy rate if they are given decent documents. 

PDF Output - PDF is the standard, and a searchable PDF provides great flexibility

To enable scanning of images you will need a desktop document scanner that uses Twain or WIA compatible scanning drivers. FreeOCR requires the .Net Framework V2.0 to be installed for XP users. You can download from SoftEagle here This framework is included with Windows Vista,7,8 so only may need installing on XP.
