Clara OCR (Optical Character Recognition) for OS/2 / eComStation


From ANNOUNCE:

"Clara OCR version 0.9.9 is available. Clara OCR is designed to OCR old books. It's available under the terms of the GPL."

Clara OCR features a GUI and a web interface. It also features a command-line interface, but X Windows is always required both to compile and run. The development effort is using Intel 32-bits boxes running various Linux distributions and FreeBSD."

Clara OCR can be found at http://freshmeat.net/projects/claraocr

Authors:
Clara OCR was written by Ricardo Ueda Karpischek. Giulio Lunati wrote the internal preprocessor. Clara OCR includes bugfixes produced by other developers. The Changelog acknowledges all them....


I have managed to build an OS/2 - executable of Clara 0.9.9.
It starts here and seems to work quite well, but it's not much tested.
This version does not support drive-letters. Don't know whether the web interface works.
USE AT YOUR OWN RISK (and have fun)
Here is the link:

To run Clara OCR you need XFree86 for OS/2 and NETPBMA. It runs also fine here with HOB-X
