    "Free is good"

    March 23, 2015  |   By spielmanjr

    Version: FreeOCR 5.4.1

    Pros

    1) Free
    2) The malware/virus alert it has previously triggered no longer happens
    3) Very useful
    4) Easy to use

    Cons

    1) Imperfect- Not as good as the software HP used to put out with its printers
    2) likes to be fed very clean copies or else it puts out a lesser product

    Summary

    Considering how few decent OCR programs there are and that this one is free I was happy to get it!

    "STILL FRAUDULENT .. Not free, but a trial."

    March 8, 2015  |   By ganerd

    Version: FreeOCR 5.4.1

    Pros

    None I could find, because I HATE FRAUDS!

    Cons

    OBVIOUSLY either the either Download.com or the company promoting this fraud cannot tel the difference between a TRAIL and FREE. Their website CLEARLY states "Download a free 30 day TRIAL version of our software ....
    Our trials are fully functional and do not leave watermarks the output PDF's so you can use them for 30 days and make an informed buying decision at your leisure."

    Summary

    Sorry I'd rather not do business with anyone who cannot tell the difference between a TRIAL and FREE. It is listed on their site as FREE, yet their site says, "Download a free 30 day trial version of our software" NO ONE IS SO IGNORANT ... thus my categorizing them as "FRAUDULENT."

    "Garned's FAKE Malware Alert"

    March 7, 2015  |   By greg666666

    Version: FreeOCR 5.4.1

    Pros

    I have used this product for years and though it does not always covert due to problems with the files I am using I have never had a problem. The Review on the other hand is just a like to another software scam .. how sleazy ... Don't believe the warnings when they come from such slimy people. Check the link yourself to see.

    Cons

    The product is free...but it does have problems with some groups of characters .. mixing up the order of the text.. not sure why the text is scrambled.

    Summary

    The product works great as a first cut if files are needlessly protected in Adobe.
