Cheap OCR

As part of the move to a "new" PC I've been looking at some of my older software and deciding whether or not to upgrade it. One was the OCR software I use, Omnipage Pro. I've been using version 13 for several years, and it worked pretty well, but I thought I might as well check. With interesting results...

Upgrade to the current version 17 is about a hundred pounds, way over my budget. But you can buy the OEM release of version 15 on eBay for £20. For that you get everything I got first time around except Paperport, an archiving program for images, which I've never found very useful. Three guesses which one I went for...

So if you want some pretty good PC OCR software, I can recommend this vendor - I think he still has quite a few left...
