Good OCR software.

Link to this post 22 Apr 09

Im looking for good OCR software for Linux. Im having a project i want to make where i want to build a server for doing OCR conversion and storing automatic for our dyslexic (who came up with a word for spelling problems that i have trouble spelling?) students. I could get a finished solution for Windows or something but they seem flexible as a brick to me. I want to be able to tailor things.

Ive tried some different projects but i havent been succesfull this far. Has anyone done some projects on Linux with OCR and what was your experiences?
