Are you kidding? OCR software still sucks.
I have yet to get even marginal results from any
piece of OCR software I have tried.
My company would gladly pay thousands of dollars
for a piece of OCR software that would actually
work and companies like google and amazon would
probably gladly give 100s of thousands of dollars
for such a piece of software. Not to mention the
library of congress, project gutenburg, etc...

If you know of a company who has "solved" OCR,
by all means let me know, and if it actually
works, I'll personally give you $100 as a
referral fee.
