Free OCR software? You may already have it... - Free OCR software? You may already have it...

"OCR (Optical Character Recognition) can really come in handy. For example, I previously wrote about how I use Timesnapper as a black box to recover work which would otherwise be lost. Since most of my work is text based (C#, SQL, HTML, documentation, communications, etc.), the obvious next step is to grab the code from a screenshot. Of course I can retype it, but OCR would be better. There are some great commercial OCR packages out there. I looked around for free OCR software, and was a little bit surprised that there wasn't much out there. Here's a rundown of what I found, wrapping up with a program that wasn't technically free, but I already had it. There's a good chance you've got it, too."
