From time to time, you may want to grab some text from a document, invoice, magazine or other printed literature, for a quotation, legal document or other reason. You could type the document by hand, but you're almost bound to make mistakes. It will also take time. If you have a scanner, why don't you scan in the document and turn the words in to digital words you can use in other documents?
SimpleOCR 3.1 is a simple but basic free OCR engine that will enable you to take machine-printed pages and then convert them in to words. It will also support handwriting, although the free version will only convert this type of document for 14 days from installation. You don't have to have scanned in a document to convert - if someone emails you a document, you can run this through SimpleOCR 3.1 for conversion.
