Better and faster than I could have imagined

I’ve used ExactCODE’s ExactScan since 2009 as a way to use an older scanner for which there were no other Mac drivers, and it works great, so I went ahead and got OCRKit without trying the demo. Wow. I am really impressed. I scanned some legal documents from a bad fax with a lot of noise and lines, and it was 1) practically instantaneous for a 22 page document, and 2) spot on accurate.


Easy to use, performs exceptionally, and developer is responsive and timely. Use this app frequently.
