Free OCR software (long)
<img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> OCR software: taken from Google Groups : alt.comp.freeware - not tested by me personally.
GOCR/JOCR v0.40 - 194 KB
GOCR/JOCR is an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program, developed under the GNU Public License. Joerg Schulenburg started the program, and now leads a team of developers.
GOCR can be used with different front-ends, which makes it very easy to port to different OSes and architectures. It can open many different image formats, and its quality have been improving in a daily basis.
The original name is GOCR. It's what is used internally in the sources.
But, when registering the site at Sourceforge, gocr was already taken.
So, it's kind of both. Yeah, we know.
