I can see the applications of using OCR software for business use. I was just wondering if anyone uses it for personal use and if so on what sort of projects.

I know disabled students with cognitive processing or vision issues will use OCR to get textbooks into formats that they can then either have read by a screen reader, or that they can mark up or search in a way that their brain can process them. Usually an office of disabilities will help set them up with the software, but as some students have graduated, they have found it so useful that they continue using it.

Wow Miranda I had never thought about that before. It is very interesting to hear that. I would love to hear a little bit more about it. If you get the time it certainly deserves a thread!

I never realized that OCR software had such an important application for some disabled people or students. Its a fresh new take on it for me! Very nice.

I have a sister who has a cognitive disorder and OCR software has made it possible for her to go to college. It helps her wondrously. It was got me on my own OCR software kick in the first place.

Your sister must be very lucky to have someone as close and supportive of her. I'm glad the tech has helped her in achieving her dreams. I bet she has a really supportive office of disabilities too.

Well, and you are lucky to have her to introduce you to great tech like OCR.
