Free OCR to Word is very simple to use text recognition software that makes all your tedious retyping and recreating documents easy. You simply scan a document then edit it in Microsoft Word.
The OCR to Word program works with any of the popular image files of JPG, JPEG, PSD, PNG, GIF, TIFF, BMP and more from a scanner attached to your computer or a digital camera, scanned image files received from a friend, or image files stored on your computer, etc. OCR to Word has the capability to identify text within image files, turn it into an electronic document and save it in the format of your choice.
Before scanning, some adjustment of scanning parameters is allowed, such as: Color format, File type, Resolution (DPI), Brightness, Contrast and more. Some image & document tools are integrated with the software for image errors correcting and document editing. With document tools you can clear the text window, remove line breaks, copy and paste the text, even add some words that are missing or correct the wrong words.
This is the program I use for all my scanning and text editing. Highly recommended! Download.
