Is there any where that I can get hold of a piece of text scanner software off the web in the form of shareware (I don't want to pay for it afterall now do I!!!!)
I was after something like omnipro but I don't think that it is shareware. I woul;d like to have something for the mac.
Any suggestions?????

I got a demo of Omnipage with my scanner and it works really well if the document is clean. Surf around for demos. i checked calera.com and no dice, but i bet there's some out there somewhere.

Good luck!
