Lifehacker OCR Call For Votes

Lifehacker OCR Call For Votes

The folks over at Lifehacker are running one of their famous High Five calls for submissions, this time about readers’ favorite OCR tools.

OCR tools have been around for decades, but only recently have they been affordable (in many instances free) and accessible to people outside of government and corporate offices. This week we want to hear about your favorite OCR tool and what features make it so good at converting hard-copy print into machine-readable and editable text.

So, if you have a favorite program (or want to see what others are suggesting), head on over and have your say.

I’ve come across a great free optical character recognition app which changes pictures to text. The app functions well compared to many the other ocr apps that do this.
