I was in need of ocr software, so I found this really easy free program to download. For those of you wondering, ocr is a way to convert a paper document to text. If you want to have an editable copy of a document, you scan the document, creating an image file, then using an ocr program to convert it to text. Then, of course, because the software is not perfect, you go through and fix all the errors the software made. It sure beats typing the whole thing out, though. FreeOCR.net did not recognize my network scanner, so I had to scan, save, then open my image files. But, I was pretty impressed with the ocr part of the software.
