Subject: OCR of 644 TIFF files?


If you had, say, 644 TIFF files, containing black and white scanned text
from a patent application. And say, you wanted to turn that back into a
text file, what would you do? The images contain code listings.

Is a commercial OCR program the way to go? Any suggestions? Is there any
freely-available OCR which would be up to the task?

(it's the Symbolics 3600 patent)

If it was 64 pages I'd type it in. But 644... :-)
