I am curious if anyone has used OCR software to "copy" pages of German text (from the German microfilm rolls) into microsoft word (or any other word processor program)? I have used the free OCR software programes on the internet, and they seem to work "ok" at best. I have even picked out pages of from the microfilm rolls that were quite clear, but the free OCR software from the net doesn't do the greatest job. I am curious if it would be worth spending money on OCR software? I am assuming the OCR software that one has to purchase would be of much better quality than the free ones on the net? Thanks in advance for any assitance.
I purchased Omnipage 18 a couple of weeks ago. I have yet to use it, but when I do, I will let you both know how it works. I am guessing it will probably be around 90% accurate, which is as good as it can be right now.
