    "Can work on Windows 7"

    September 15, 2010  |   By gtown_caps_fan

    Version: Kleptomania 2.6

    Pros

    I used to use this application 8 or 9 years ago, and it worked great. It grabbed text on screen and had 99 percent accuracy. And it still can, read on.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this is probably still the same version I used 9 years ago; it appears it has not been updated, and the associated website for the application does not seem to exist. That said, I was able to get it to work on Windows 7 64-bit...

    Summary

    To run on Windows 7, I ran the installer in "Compatibility Mode" for 2000 (Properties of the installer exe file), and then I changed both exe files in the program files (x86) sub-directory to both run with 2000 compatibility as well. I received a few odd errors, but I was able to capture text and paste it into an application, as advertised.

    Bottom line is this: If you need something for a short duration (40 days), then the demo may work for you for a while, whereas anything that is designed to work on a modern OS will cost you at least $30 - $100+. It has helped me out of a pinch, but I don't expect to leave it on my Windows 7 x64 system for long since it seems unsupported and not designed for Win7.

    "Not Good!! Do not install with Vista"

    August 30, 2010  |   By chevinoz

    Version: Kleptomania 2.6

    Pros

    NONE!! Waste of time.

    Cons

    Does not work with PDF's.
    Conflicts with Vista font settings.
    Very outdated software.
    Uninstall is not clean.
    Wasted an hour + of my day sorting out the mess.

    Summary

    Does not work in the Vista windows environment.
    No updates since 2007......no wonder it has problems.

    "Quick solution for data transfer with some reservations"

    November 17, 2009  |   By jwhoweth

    Version: Kleptomania 2.6

    Pros

    Easy install in XP Pro system, Easy interface, irritating pop-ups.

    Cons

    Some OCR errors - (hotmail.com became hotmaii.com; gmail.com became gmaii.com). No proofing or learning OCR. No preference setting for screen fonts to assist OCR engine.

    Summary

    Overall satisfied with OCR accuracy. I would check or validate the data before inserting it into a database. A B+ effort overall.

    "Extremely memory intense, crashes, and slows computer"

    February 14, 2009  |   By odestiny

    Version: Kleptomania 2.6

    Pros

    Short cut keys and fonts added automatically makes the front end simple and nice.

    Cons

    Reading 75 words generates a 235 meg clipboard file. The program crashes soon afterward though I have 2 gig mem. For some reason firefox locks up too though not associated with the item being read nor the program. Computer runs slowly afterward.

    Summary

    Most of these ocr programs are based on the same "engine". It does not work. Notice ratings on all similar programs. In addition, even if the program worked as claimed, the time it takes to translate the minute amount of ocr text that can be read within common memory limits its longer than it would take to type it.

    "Simple, powerful, uniquely effective"

    February 9, 2007  |   By GGreenberg

    Version: Kleptomania 2.4

    Pros

    I know no similar product, that allows me to capture text from screens where the program's author neglected to make the text copy-able.

    Cons

    1) It's not perfect in recognizing text (of course).

    2) It's not always obvious that it failed. It might help for the failed captures (when Klepto makes up a bunch of punctuation for the letters it can't recognize) to show up in another color or something.
