A friend has a HP OfficeJet 7310v All-in-One printer/scanner/copier/fax machine and wants to use the scanning function to scan some documents into an editable form.
She does not have MS Office installed but uses OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 instead. I've learned that I need good OCR software to make this happen and I'm posting here to see if anyone has any recommendations for OCR software that supports or works with OpenOffice.org writer.
Right now, I can get the OCR software that came with the printer to create a RTF file but all of the formatting of the scanned text is lost. *sigh*
Any recommendations on good OCR software that would work well with OpenOffice.org writer or will OpenOffice.org support not be an issue if I get good OCR software?
Thanks in advance!
