JOCR Alternatives

    JOCR is described as 'Apparently JOCR requires Microsoft Office 2003 or 2007 and won't work with Office 2010 (unless you also have an older version and do some tweaking). [1]' and is an app in the Photos & Graphics category. There are more than 10 alternatives to JOCR for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, iPhone and iPad. The best alternative is Greenshot, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like JOCR are Spectacle (Free, Open Source), Capture2text (Free, Open Source), ABBYY Screenshot Reader (Paid) and Deepin Screenshot (Free, Open Source).
