It's free to try.
Here is my converted text from a clean scan of Arial type at about 14 pt: The partlestothe Insurance contractarethe Insurer.the pollcyokVner.the Insured. andthebeneflclaW ThepollcyokVnerandthelnsuredmaybethesameordlHerentpersons Regardless.
Clean interface, if it worked.
Would not recognize very clear and simple text through direct selection or through scanning the whole file. Would return with "Nothing Selected" in every case.
No Pros at all.
Can't recognize the TIF which contains a well formatted text.
Total agree with the poster

I can't tell you if this software is good because you can't use it without purchase.
I'm very suprised that cnet allowed this software to be classified as free. I'd say its possible that the developer was deceptive in their description to downloads.com They do an outstanding job of providing quality malware free software. I use this site almost daily.
