Free Best OCR

I just needed a cool yet Free OCR tool and were trying hands on multiple available. BUT finally found the below 3 to be the best in order of perfection and efficiency -


  1. OnlineOCR ( One +plus is that - it gives me a download option with various output format)
  2. Free-OCR
  3. NewOCR

Extract of text from image format is so simplified !!

The Engineering attempts at automated recognition of printed characters started much before World War II. But it was only by early 1950's some commercial attempt was undertaken to have funded R&D on this area.

OCR has taken new feats & heights - I know some of the Engineering efforts from IITG where Handwritten Character Recognition has taken a whole new dimension and heading for interesting feats in this niche area.
