OCR Software

I just wondered if anyone had used any OCR software - you know, something that can take a scanned document and produce an editable text version.

In particular, does anyone know if you can link such software to a Portuguese dictionary, or at least to the Portuguese alphabet/accents - the one I've tried only "knows" English and has great difficulty with all the words ending with "-ções" for example.



PS - I don't want to have to pay for it :D

Most HP printer owners expect their printing device to produce quality prints. Why not? After all, HP has great brand value worldwide. In reality, the quality of the prints depends on the operation of the hardware and software components of a printer. Quality HP Printer Is Not Printing appears with black ink on a sheet of paper without showing any stains. This is the print quality expected when a printer works normally.
