Online OCR Comments

It works if you have low standards

Comment by OmgItsTheSmartGuy
about Online OCR Sep 2011

In a few tests that I did, OnlineOCR.net was able to recognize the text inside my sample images almost perfectly. However, when I tried downloading the results as a Word document, the formatting was totally screwed up. It's best just to download the results as plain text, and then format it yourself.
