I am looking for a solution that will scan multi page documents and
convert the text therein and import the content into OO Writer -
something akin to Omnipage for Windows. Omnipage scans the document
and imports the text into the "default" word processor with a "best
fit" formatting. User can then edit that file.
>From my preliminary search looks like it is a 3 step process on Linux:
1. Scan the document into a tiff format and then
2. Run the tiff file through gocr and then
3. Open OO writer and import the text file for formatting.
Would appreciate feedback and/or suggestions/tips if you have any
experience with OCR on the Linux desktop.
