I am looking for a FREE OCR tool to read screenshot.

similar paid software is ABBY Screenshot Reader which can select a area of the screen and read the text.


Is there any similar software ?

Fujitsu I think? Used to give free OCR software away when you bought a scanner, no idea if it's free to download off their site or what but you could have a look.

the link says .... The conversion quality is not so great.

also this requires page to save first and then do a OCR ......whereas in ABBY you can do OCR on the fly ...i.e you launch application and then you select a area and you click OCR to get the text.......This will useful for web pages which you dont require to save.
