I have seen many OCR programs, main Microsoft-based systems [where I'd
assume more development goes into them]. However I have never been
impressed with one. Fine for doing a page or two, where you have the
time to go back and check spellings and so fourth, but on any sort of
large scale scan job it's unfeasable.
Regardless of money, I don't think OCR is advanced enough yet [as I also
said 5 years ago sadly], hopefully sometime in future.
