I may be wrong but I think Project GNU has an OCR program and that googlemade their OCR available as free software as well. I have not tried either nor have I even spent the time to confirm their existence but, if they do infact exist, they shouldn't be too hard to find. cdh -----Original Message----- From: programmingblind-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:programmingblind-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Daniel Dalton Sent: Wednesday, April 16, 2008 7:45 PM To: blind programming Subject: Re: Is linex better than Windows? was Re: JFW keymap like orca keymap?

I haven't touched a windows box in 12 months a part from having to use one at school the other day... OCR and audio editing, well I believe there are options for audio editing and I think there is also a basic OCR package on linux-speakup.org somewhere...? Just found this in apt... gocr is this a ocr package? Its cmd based... Dunno, when I need to scan stuff I will look into this, but guys on the linux channels seem to thing there is some character recognition stuff on sourceforge. -- Daniel Dalton http://members.iinet.net.au/~ddalton/ <d.dalton@xxxxxxxxxxxx> __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind __________ NOD32 3033 (20080417) Information __________ This message was checked by NOD32 antivirus system. http://www.eset.com __________ View the list's information and change your settings at http://www.freelists.org/list/programmingblind
