Great and simple tool for scanning to pdf files. With little enhancements it could be used for document scanning - have look at the feature requests.
Great software, thank you.
Great, I need OCR Text over page image PDF Documents for the way I work. My Photocopier scans to my desktop, and I import into gscan2pdf, (clean up - sometimes) OCR and save as a new pdf. I had been using ReadIris in Wine until now, because it was better. Now I get better results faster with Gscan2pdf and cuniform (LinuxMint) than I was getting with ReadIris. (99% accuracy - actually have not found an error yet) Big Thumbs up from me
great program gscan2pdf, thanks.
The application is simple to use and shows a great potential. I have only one advice: why do not add an option to open the OCR resulting file in an external editor (Emacs would be cool)? This would speed up the orthographic corrections due to the presence of the spell checking options. And well, thinking a little more to the editor, maybe an editor managing very easily Unicode characters would be a better choice (even if I love Emacs).
