    It looks as if Tesseract, the OCR software HP released to open source, is finally becoming something. Google just released their alpha version of what they call OCRopus under the Apache license.

    You can read the rest of the arstechnica article here.

    This is a pretty interesting development. I tried Tesseract as a standalone product a couple of years ago. It had no gui, and the syntax used at the bash prompt was far less than intuitive, but for a product that hadn't undergone any development in almost a decade, it worked pretty well. This has the capability of becoming some of the best OCR software available.
