Hi forum,

 

I'm trying to convert my jpg to doc.  Any free OCR would you recommend ?

 

Thanks!

Below is a link to download Aostsoft OCR Converter and its specs page. The download is a free to try, 3-file conversion trial. Have used it and it works. It's a good short term solution. It's always a good practice to be cautious when downloading from any website, but CNET is traditionally a reputable company/website.

<snip> but CNET is traditionally a reputable company/website.


I would go so far as to say that's highly debatable, and others have had less than pleasant experiences. Just one topic of several I know of regarding that website's downloads: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/497656/just-a-gripe-about-sites-that-supply-junk-to-accompany-softward-download/

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Do you have any alternative recommendations...certain websites or do you go straight to the source? I personally haven't had any issues, but that doesn't mean that there aren't any. I am open to any alternatives/suggestions.

I know this topic is somewhat outdated, but I would recommend simply getting Adobe Acrobat if you can. I don't know prices, but even the older versions will work for what you need.  I have Acrobat 9. You can run OCR with Acrobat.  Once text is recognized, it will read the text, you can edit or simply copy/paste the text into Word. Beware of copy/paste once OCR recognized and check carefully for formatting issues because it will not always paste correctly but is still a huge time saver.
