7/14    what is some OCR software for OSX that doesn't suck? - danh
        \_ I hear the super-expensive Acrobat is good, but if you find
           a cheaper quality alternative, please let me know. -brett
        \_ I've used Photoshop + Acrobat to OCR magazine articles and
           papers and found that it works pretty well. If you want to
           save some money buy a copy of Acrobat v6. --ranga

8/26    Any suggestions on a good OCR program for either OS X or Windows that
        will work on scanned documents outputted to pdf?  Preferably free?
        Thanks, scottyg
        \_ Check Abbyy or Scansoft.  Not free.
           \_ Thanks...I think I'd prefer a free or opensource piece of
              software unless there is a huge difference in quality.  I

3/26    Anyone here uses Heritrix?  I'm trying to read the Intro document at but
        both Adobe Reader 8.1.3 (Win32) and gv 3.6.5 (cygwin) display error
        messages and show me blank pages.  Adobe displays:
        "Cannot extract the embedded font 'FTXWSG+TimesNewRomanMS'.  Some
        characters may not display or print correctly."
