One of the missing apps from the GNU/Linux domain is a good OCR app. It may be needed by a small group of users, out of a small group of GNU/Linux users, but it is needed. I suspect if the app is as good as stated, that soon enough someone will incorporate it into Kooka or another GTK or other type of gui application. My bet would be that it is picked up by Kooka or some other Kapp, since KDE developers like to make as many apps as possible use KDE libraries and functional working using resources already loaded for KDE instead of adding more resource requirements to a running system. I also hope that this app picks up mindshare and is picked up under KDE.


Return to Google's Tesseract OCR engine is a quantum leap forward
