It seems the major OCR companies (Xerox, Caere, Expervision, Bitsoft...)
offer only Windows 95 / NT products.
The non-interactive (API) versions are quite expensive for lab use
($2000 - $5000 USD). Nevertheless I'm now considering buying one of those,
running it on a PC, and connecting it to the UNIX box using CORBA(!)
