I've recently been looking for this kind of software and have found none.
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(!)

1. ocr linux scanner: ocr support for linux scanners?

 I'm looking for a scanner/OCR combination for linux.

I don't want to spend a bundle.

I know that vividata ocr shop can be used with linux.

But the scanners they support seem only to be high end, and most of
them I can't even find prices for. (maybe they are out of date).

Does anyone have experiences with running ocr shop on linux? Are there
any open source ocr attempts? rj
