    Your link “Download the best OCR software – FreeOCR Powered by Tesseract OCR engine.” seems to have been hijacked–it no longer goes to FreeOCR

    I have tried many different types of OCR software and in my opinion, CVISION Technologies offers one of the best product out there. Not only is it highly accurate, but it is also really fast. It certainly has the best combination of both. You can try their product for free through their trial version.
