User Reviews

  • I keep interesting newspaper articles by taking a picture of them with pocket camera and OCR the image. with my 6 year old OCR program which Is no longer available but tp name it here would violate this site's antispam policy. I compared it to gImageReader on March 17, 2016. For my purposes, gImageReader is inferior. It could not handle the fact that the article was in 4 columns. This can easily be remedied by selecting the columns to be recognized one at a time. A photo is however not as clear as a scan. I could easily read this photo and my unnameable program OCR-ed with few errors but gImageReader made quite a bit more.
