I'm suprised no-one else has answered this, but...

There are a couple of packages in sunsite which seem to fit the bill.
They both run under X; one is an english version, one is german version.
I can't comment on either of them as I'm afraid I've never used them;
I use my scanner under Windoze (no Linux driver).

If you try them, I'd be interested to hear how well they work. Might
encourage me to have a go a writing a Linux driver for my scanner... :-)

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 (maybe they are out of date).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
