Qt front-end to tesseract-ocr

gImageReader is a Qt front-end to Tesseract optical character recognition (OCR) software.

gImageReader supports automatic page layout detection but the user can also manually define and adjust the recognition regions. It is possible to import images from disk, scanning devices, clipboard and screenshots. gImageReader also supports multipage PDF documents. Recognized text is displayed directly next to the image and basic text editing including search/replace and removing of line breaks is possible. Spellchecking for the output text is also supported if the corresponding dictionaries are installed.
