I recently aquired an inexpensive OMR program that works great if all the scans come in precisely the same but thats not happening all the time any software out there that can batch straighten all the scans so they all line up precisely

Nuance's PaperPort can auto-straighten while scanning and it can also auto-straighten after scanning:

Street price is $30 for the Standard edition (there's a more expensive Professional edition, but you don't need that):

To auto-straighten while scanning, you simply check a setting in a Scanning Profile, as shown in this screenshot:
