Hello everyone. I hope this is the right forum to post this question.
Recently I've been having a look around for some free OCR software in regards to converting a few scanned book pages to editable text. Quite a few people I've asked have mentioned the Microsoft Office Document Imaging program but that's no good in my case since I don't use Microsoft Office at all.
I was thinking of trying the free SimpleOCR
program (anyone have any thoughts on it either way?) but that brings another problem. Namely in that it only scans from .TIFF files, a format I know next to nothing about. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
