Tesseract is an open source Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
engine. It has unicode (UTF-8) support and can recognize more than
100 languages "out of the box" and it can be trained to recognize
more. Tesseract supports various output formats: plain-text,
hocr(html), pdf.
Tesseract was originally developed at Hewlett-Packard Laboratories
Bristol and at Hewlett-Packard Co, Greeley Colorado between 1985
and 1994, with some more changes made in 1996 to port to Windows,
and some C++izing in 1998.
In 2005 Tesseract was open sourced by HP and since 2006 it is
developed by Google.
