OCR in Writer

Postby palekna » Wed Nov 21, 2007 10:37 pm

Back when I used to used MS Office I was able to scan a document into word and use the OCR [Optical Character Recognition] provided by my scanner software. Is there a way to do this in Open Office? I can't seem to find it!

Some of the OCR applications integrate in OOo but not all it seems.
What's your OS, OOo version and your OCR software ?
AOO 4.0.1 on Windows 7 and Xubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr)
