Yesterday we went out to dinner with an acquaintance I haven't seen in a few years. The topic of student demonstrations came up. (The students in Montreal have been demonstrating for the past three months against tuition increases.) I said I agreed with the students. He said that I should wait until I was 50 and got cynical, like him.

50! Hah! I just turned 62.

I have a NeatScan portable scanner. It came with NeatScan to Office software. That means that it would only scan using an MS Office product, like Excel. It worked perfectly with the free trial version of Office that came with my computer. It scans the receipt; OCRs it; let's you make corrections; and then puts it in a spreadsheet. I just hate having to use an MS product. I use Open Office and will be switching to LibreOffice. I like free and open source

So, I bit the bullet; held my nose; and bought Office 2010. I tried it with my nifty little scanner. It scanned fine, but didn't do the OCR part. Phooey!

Today I discovered that the scanner works with my favourite image software, IrfanView - one of the most popular viewers worldwide Yay! I'm now hunting for some free OCR software. Any suggestions?
