Is there any ICR free software so far, similar to ABBY's product FlexiCapture.

This is generally used for charecter recognitions. Basically hard copy paper form's contains charecter's  which will  be scanned and given as an input to the software, and the software give's the charecters present as a soft copy.

Thanks

I heard  implemention of solutions with OCR/ICR in scenarios like your. We used a software called Documents for Forms from Readsoft.

You can take a look here...

This software is modularized. Modules are self explaining and are Scan, Interpret, Verify and Transfer. There's a manager module too. Idea with this software is to define what and where to extract in manager module, scan documents, an interpreter will extract information (OCR,ICR,Checks,barcodes,...) , and a manual verify module to check and correct, and finally a transfer module to send send data wherever you want.

With this software and an optimized form design (this point is the key) we have reduced to half time needed in manual data entry. Of course this software is not free and is needed to have several thousand forms/year to process in order to make it economically profitable.
