Good scans are a must! ScanStore Review

Please keep in mind this is a FREE OCR application and you should not expect the robust performance of a commercial OCR. SimpleOCR works great when you have clean, black & white TIFF scanned images of documents using common fonts and without a lot of complex layout. It does not work with color images. Fortunately, most text is on black & white documents, so meeting this criteria is a matter of setting your scanner settings properly.
If your documents don't meet this criteria, please try one of the several commercial OCR applications we offer here.

I would like to be able to ocr Spanish language documents, but SimpleOCR doesn't do them. It would be great to have an option "no language" on the startup screen so that the program just OCRs what it sees without referencing any particular language dictionary. The documents I have scanned in English have come out fine.
