"Worthless."

December 08, 2009  |  By Lukahn

 |  Version: OCR Image to Ascii Utility 1.1

Pros

Clean interface, if it worked.

Cons

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.

"This is garbage! It is classified incorrectly, this is not freeware!"

June 26, 2007  |  By 0073735963

 |  Version: OCR Image to Ascii Utility 1.1

Pros

I can't tell you if this software is good because you can't use it without purchase.

Cons

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.
