Clara OCR - powerful free/Open Source OCR program

Author: JT Smith

LinuxPR: "he Clara OCR Project is proud to announce the availability of its new version
0.9.7, associated with a new web site and mailing lists.

Clara OCR is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) program. It features both a
powerful GUI for the X Window System, and a web interface. The web interface is
able to collect revision efforts from the Internet, using a simple revision model.

Clara OCR is intended to be used in the cooperative optical recognition of old
books. It tries to facilitate fine-tuning, so an optical recognition project is enabled
to invest resources in tuning the OCR, in order to achieve better recognition
results for one specific book, and reduce the overall revision cost."
