GOCR Alternatives

    GOCR is described as 'OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program, developed under the GNU Public License. It converts scanned images of text back to text files. Joerg Schulenburg started the program, and now leads a team of developers' and is an app in the Office & Productivity category. There are more than 25 alternatives to GOCR for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Online / Web-based, Mac, iPhone and Linux. The best alternative is Adobe Acrobat DC. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Tesseract or OCRmyPDF. Other great apps like GOCR are ABBYY FineReader PDF (Paid), FreeOCR (Free), CopyFish (Free, Open Source) and (a9t9) Free OCR Software (Free, Open Source).
