OCR'ing Old Magazine Progs

Recommended Posts

I recently upgraded (yet again!) to Omnipage Professional 18 OCR software from Nuance. I started out in the 90's with Caere's Omnipage 2 or 3, so I'd hate to think of all the $ I've spent on the upgrades. But it's finally paying off! With every upgrade, the OCR of old magazine articles and programs got better and better. The articles themselves pose no particular problem, since a "typo" here and there is easy to tolerate. But OCR'ing programs has been difficult. The really old dot matrix listings are still error-prone, but "regular" typefaces are now easily recognized. I still would not describe it as "fun," but now when I need a program from magazines like Compute! that had many issues without disks, it's no problem.
