The Tesseract OCR engine was one of the top 3 engines in the 1995
UNLV Accuracy test. Between 1995 and 2006 it had little work done on
it, but since then it has been improved extensively by Google and is
probably one of the most accurate open source OCR engines
available. It can read a wide variety of image formats and convert
them to text in over 40 languages.
