If you want to try another OCR-engine ...
I have compiled the 'Tesseract Open Source OCR Engine' (
http://sourceforge.net/projects/tesseract-ocr ) for OS/2 / eCS
Currently it only recognizes English and its character set is only US-ASCII. Training code IS included in the open source release however, and will be included in a future release.
You can download the OS/2-executable (including build-instructions) from my website:
