Clara is an optical character recognition (OCR) software, a program that tries
to identify the graphic images of the characters from a scanned document, converting
their digital images to ASC, ISO or other codes. The name Clara stands for Cooperative
Lightweight chAracter Recognizer.
|Clara OCR version 0.9.9 is available. Clara OCR is designed to OCR old books. It's available under the terms of the GPL.|
Clara OCR features a GUI and a web interface. It also features a command-line interface, but X Windows is always required both to compile and run. The development effort is using Intel 32-bits boxes running various Linux distributions and FreeBSD.
The authors are Ricardo Ueda Karpischek and Giulio Lunati. Clara OCR includes bugfixes produced by other developers. The Changelog (http://www.claraocr.org/CHANGELOG) acknowledges all them. Franz Bakan is the person who ported ClaraOCR to OS/2.
He has managed to build an OS/2 - executable of Clara 0.9.9.
It starts and seems to work quite well, but it's not much tested.
This version does not support drive-letters. Don't know whether the web interface works.

To run Clara OCR you need XFree86 for OS/2 and NETPBMA. It runs also fine here with HOB-X
