Clara OCR - powerful free/open-source OCR program
-------------------------------------------------

The Clara OCR Project is proud to announce the availability of
its new version 0.9.7, associated with a new web site and mailing
lists.

Clara OCR is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) program. It
features both a powerful GUI for the X Window System, and a web
interface. The web interface is able to collect revision efforts
from the Internet, using a simple revision model.

Clara OCR is intended to be used in the cooperative optical
recognition of old books. It tries to facilitate fine-tuning, so
an optical recognition project is enabled to invest resources in
tuning the OCR, in order to achieve better recognition results
for one specific book, and reduce the overall revision cost.

Clara OCR is distributed under the terms of the GNU General
Public License.

The development started in the second half of 1999. After two
years of intensive work, it is currently close to the 1.0
version. In some cases, the current beta version could actually
be used for production.

The documentation is almost complete. We already have a FAQ, a
Tutorial, and preliminary versions of the Advanced User's Manual
and the Developer's Guide.

The development effort is using Intel 32-bit boxes and various
different distributions of GNU/Linux.

Clara OCR can be found at http://www.claraocr.org.
